Miscellaneous areas in Probability and Statistics:

I have worked in a few other areas, in small ways, producing papers in stochastic control theory (#8 and #9), point processes (#19), random walks & Brownian motion (#69) and self-organising systems (#54). I have also engaged in statistical consulting projects (#16, #22, #24, #49).
