Mike's research and teaching activities in Bayesian statistics involve stochastic modelling in higher-dimensional problems: theory and methods of dynamic models in time series analysis, multivariate analysis, latent structure, high-dimensional inference and computation, stochastic computational methods, parallel/GPU computing and computation, among others.

Inter-disciplinary application areas have included research in signal processing, finance, econometrics, climatology, systems biology, genomics and neuroscience, among others. Currently active areas include financial econometrics, high-dimensional time series, dynamic networks, nonlinear dynamics in biomedical studies, spatio-temporal systems and computer model emulation.
