Research Interests: Research interests include: spatial and spatiotemporal statistical modelling, multivariate time series analysis, econometric models and statistical estimators, stochastic frontier models and machine learning in applied domains of banking, airport industry, urban road traffic, public transport, venture markets, and environmental management.

Project Type: Applied

Main Challenge:

Surveys play an important role in social researchers. We provide consultancy on survey data processing: from visualization of obtained results to deeper statistical analysis – testing consistency of survey results, discovering important factors and their structures, clustering respondents.
