A picture of meI received a B.Sc. (2009) and M.Sc. (2011) in Mathematics from Università degli Studi di Milano. In 2016 I obtained a Ph.D. in Mathematical Models and Methods in Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, with a thesis titled Statistical methods for omics data (Advisor: Piercesare Secchi; Co-advisors: Laura M. Sangalli and Simone Vantini). I joined the Pennsylvania State University as Postdoctoral Researcher in 2016, working with Francesca Chiaromonte and Kateryna D. Makova.

Currently I am a Bruce Lindsay Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at the Pennsylvania State University. From Fall 2019 I will be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Operations and Decision Systems at Université Laval.

Research interests

I develop statistical techniques for the analysis of large, high-dimensional and complex data – in particular functional data. An important aspect of my research is its collaborative and multidisciplinary nature. Indeed, much of my work is at the interface between statistics and computational biology, and my main application area is in the “Omics” sciences.
