I obtained my BSc and MSc in Mathematical Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano in 2005 and 2007 respectively. After a 6 months fellowship at the same institution, I moved to the University of Chicago where I obtained my PhD in Statistics in 2013 under the supervision of Prof. Michael Stein. In 2013 I moved to King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (Saudi Arabia), where I was a Postdoctoral Fellow working with Prof. Marc Genton. From 2014 to 2017 I was Lecturer at Newcastle University (United Kingdom), before being appointed Assistant Professor in Statistics at the University of Notre Dame.
