Astrostatistics is a discipline which spans astrophysics, statistical analysis and data mining.

Development of Bayesian methods using Markov-Chain Monte-Carlo (MCMC)

 I. Determination of Star Formation Histories using MCMC: Analysis of degeneracies between age, metallicity, extinction, burst duration, etc. Hierarchical methods.

II. Age and metallicity gradients in the disks of spiral galaxies (using hierarchical MCMC). Sample from CALIFA survey.
