Analysis of Multiple Random Functions

The primary focus of this research is to develop methodology for identifying patterns in multiple random functions. In my research related to this methodological area, I investigate methods under different assumptions starting with independence between random curves and extending this common assumption to spatial-dependence between curves and multidimensional random functions. The random function can take values in a continuous space (e.g. Gaussian random processes) or they can take discrete values (e.g. binary functional data). Relevant methods include clustering, regression and association analysis.
