Dr Alice Corbella

I am away from the Department until April 2024.

I am an Assistant Professor in Statistics.

Previously I was a Post-Doctoral Research Associate of the Bayes4HealthLink opens in a new window collaboration, a project that aims at developing new advanced methods to tackle health problems. I worked under the joint supervision of Gareth Roberts and Simon Spencer.

As part of my current work, I am looking at MCMC methods, particularly focussing on the Zig-Zag sampling (Bierkens et al, 2019) and its application to Bayesian inference of infectious disease dynamics from epidemic data.

Previously, I was in Cambridge (MRC Biostatistics Unit), where I did a PhD under the joint supervision of Anne PresanisLink opens in a new window and Dani De Angelis Link opens in a new windowon epidemic models for influenza. You can find my PhD thesis hereLink opens in a new window.

Please come to my office for a coffee (strictly Italian espresso) and a chat on the most interesting topics of stats (MCMC, SMC, dynamics models and SSMs, infectious disease dynamics, model identifiability and many more!).
