I am a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at Imperial College London, in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics .

From 2009 to 2011 I was a Brunel Research Fellow funded by the SuSTaIN programme of the Statistics Group of the Department of Mathematics of the University of Bristol.

I have completed my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Jim Smith. During my postgraduate studies I worked on Bayesian clustering algorithms, in collaboration with the Millar Lab (University of Edinburgh) and the Observatoire Ocenealogique of Banyuls-de-mer .

I completed my first degree in the Department of Statistics of the University of Florence (Italy) in 2005. The title of my final project was “Graphical Gaussian Models in R”, supervised by Prof. Giovanni Marchetti. In 2006 I completed the MSc in Statistics at the University of Warwick with a dissertation titled “Particle Filters and Adaptive Estimation”, supervised by Dr. Anastasia Papavasiliou .

More generally, my interests extend to many aspects of Bayesian analysis. See the research page for further information on my research and the list of publications.

This is a video about my research and it is aimed at the general public. The video was awarded a ‘highly commended’ prize at the ISBA (International Society for Bayesian Analysis) video competition. In the video I briefly describe the advances of technology in Biology and Genetics and the challenges that they offer to the statistical community. You can read more about my research interests here.
