Welcome to my personal web page!

I am a Postdoctoral researcher in Statistics at the Department of Statistics and Data Science at University of Texas at Austin (Austin, USA), under the mentorship of Peter Müller and Abhra Sarkar. I am also 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 PhD student in Statistics at Bocconi University (Milan, Italy), under the supervision of Antonio Lijoi and Igor Prünster.

Research interests

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

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

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

  • Dynamic regression: hidden Markov models for binary time series.

  • Applications: auditory neuroscience, genomics and proteomics.
