I am a postdoctoral researcher at Bocconi UniversityMy research is supervised by Prof. Igor Prünster and funded by the ERC grant on "New Directions in Bayesian Nonparametrics".

Before coming to Bocconi I was an EPSRC Doctoral Prize research fellow at the Department of Statistics at the University of Warwick,  from October 2015 to September 2016. Before that I did my PhD in the same department, under the supervision of Professor Wilfrid Kendall.

Generally speaking I am interested in Statistics, Applied Probability and Probability Theory. More specifically I am working on:

  • Computational Statistics: Monte Carlo methods; Markov Chain Monte Carlo algorithms;
  • Bayesian Statistics: Bayesian Nonparametrics, Random Partition Models;
  • Probability Theory: point processes and random measures, Markov chains, Dirichlet forms.
  • Applied Statistics: record linkage, spatial statistics, variable selection.
