Welcome to my web page!

I am an Assistant Professor (RtdA) of Statistical Science at the Department of Economics, Social Studies, Applied Mathematics and Statistics (ESOMAS) of the University of Torino.

I am also a Research Affiliate at Collegio Carlo Alberto as part of the “de Castro” Statistics Initiative, a Research Affiliate at the Bayes Lab at the Bocconi Institute for Data Science and Analytics (BIDSA) and a member of the Complex Data Modeling Research Network led by MiDas.

Previously, I was 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 obtained my Ph.D. 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, drift-diffusion models, and Bayesian categorical regression.

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

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

  • Applications: auditory neuroscience, genomics and proteomics.
