I am Assistant Professor in Statistics at the Dipartimento di Scienze Economico-sociali e Matematico-statistiche (ESOMAS), Università degli Studi di Torino (IT). Prior to joining Torino, I was lecturer in Statistics in the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science at the University of Kent (2017), and post-doctoral research fellow in Statistics at the Department of Statistics, University of Warwick (2014-2016). I obtained a PhD in Statistical Science from Duke University in November 2013.
My research focuses primarily on the development of Bayesian models for the analysis of functional and longitudinal data. In particular, I am interested in methods to extract the low-dimensional structure in the data (latent factors, principal components, clustering), and flexible parametric and non-parametric modelling (bases expansions, Gaussian/spatial processes). Some highlight application areas are neuroimaging, sport analytics, -omics data, and causal inference.
