Welcome to my personal web page!

I am a postdoctoral researcher in Statistics at the Department of Statistics and Data Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin, under the mentorship of Peter Müller and Abhra Sarkar. I am also a member of the Bayes Lab at the Bocconi Institute for Data Science and Analytics (BIDSA) and of the Complex Data Modeling Research Network led by MiDas.

Previously, I was a Ph.D. student in Statistics at Bocconi University, under the supervision of Antonio Lijoi and Igor Prünster.

Research interests

I am interested in Bayesian modeling of complex data structures. More specifically I have been working on:

  • Bayesian nonparametrics: discrete random probabilities, mixture models, random partitions and probabilistic clustering.

  • Bayesian modeling for binary and categorical data: dynamic regression for binary time series, hidden Markov models and Bayesian categorical regression.

  • Bayesian dimensionality reduction: probabilistic multidimensional scaling and individual difference scaling analysis.

  • Computational statistics: Monte Carlo, Markov chain Monte Carlo, sequential Monte Carlo methods and variational inference.

  • Applications: auditory neuroscience, genomics and proteomics.
