About Me

I am rising fifth year PhD student in Statistics at The Wharton School, The University of Pennsylvania. I am working under the supervision of Ed George and Shane Jensen.
I am interested in Bayesian non parametric and clustering, with applications in the context of spatial data.

I completed a Bachelor of Mathematics from the University of Parma, supported by the National Institute of High Mathematics INdAM; I then obtained a Master in Mathematics from the University of Torino. At the same time, I joined the Allievi Honors Program of Collegio Carlo Alberto, where I received a Master in Mathematics and Statistics, supervised by Igor Pruenster and Antonio Lijoi.
