Francesca Crucinio


I discussed my PhD thesis in August 2021 and I am now a research associate at the University of Warwick (see my new webpage).

I am a fourth year OxWaSp student supervised by Adam Johansen (Warwick) and Arnaud Doucet (Oxford) working on non-standard interacting particle systems for Fredholm integral equations of the first kind.

Before joining OxWaSP, I studied Mathematical Engineering at Politecnico di Torino.

Research Interest

I am interested in computational statistics, particularly sequential Monte Carlo methods and interacting particle systems. My work focuses on developing sequential Monte Carlo algorithms and particle methods for the solution of a particular type of integral equations which find applications in image reconstruction and density deconvolution.

In the past, I worked on algebraic based sampling techniques for discrete distributions and their link with permutations.
