I have now moved to the University of Edinburgh, as a Lecturer in Statistics and Data Science at the School of Mathematics, as of October 2018. My new website.

I am a Harrison Early Career Assistant Professor at the Department of Statistics, University of Warwick. I currently hold a Warwick Academic Returners Fellowship (Sept 2017-July 2018), following a break for maternity leave.

My research interests are statistics and machine learning, particularly Bayesian nonparametrics, regression, density estimation, clustering, and feature allocation. Applications of interest include the study of Alzheimer’s disease based on neuroimaging, biological, and clinical data.

Before joining the department, I was a postdoctoral researcher at University of Cambridge working with Prof. Zoubin Ghahramani on Bayesian nonparametric clustering and feature allocation. In January 2013, I earned my PhD in Statistics from Bocconi University in Milan, working on Bayesian nonparametric regression with Prof. Sonia Petrone and Prof. Stephen Walker.

I am the chair of BAYSM 2018: Bayesian Young Statisticians Meeting to be held on 2-3 July, 2018 at the Department of Statistics, University of Warwick: warwick.ac.uk/baysm

I co-organised a CRiSM workshop on Contempory Issues in Hypothesis Testing on September 15-16, 2016 at Department of Statistics, University of Warwick: warwick.ac.uk/crism/workshops/hypothesistesting
