About Holger Rootzén

My research is about random processes. High-dimensional statistics for extreme episodes and the "shape" of extreme episodes in non-differentiable Gaussian processes is what I think most about right now. I try to contribute to mitigation of the impact of extreme floods, windstorms, and heat waves caused by climate change, and to using naturalistic driving studies to prevent car crashes. Journal editing takes up a not so small part of my life: I’m co-editor for the Scandinavian Journal of Statistics; associate editor for Annals of Statistics; earlier editor for Bernoulli and for Extremes. I lead a Wallenberg project Big Data and Big Systems.
