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). In 2016 I joined the Department of Statistics of the Pennsylvania State University, working as Postdoctoral Researcher with Francesca Chiaromonte and Kateryna D. Makova, and from 2017 as Bruce Lindsay Visiting Assistant Professor.

Currently I am 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.
