Short Bio

I grew up in Gragnano, a small town near Naples in Italy, famous for its pasta. I moved to Milan for my BSc and MSc. I spent a quarter in the USA as exchange student during the BSc period. I had the privilege to be a Bocconi Institute for Data Science and Analytics (BIDSA) Visting Student under the supervision of professor Antonio Lijoi.

Currently, I am a PhD student in Statistics at the University of Warwick. I work under the supervision of professor Bärbel Finkenstädt on Advanced Hidden Markov Models for Physiological time series data.

I serve as Secretary of the RSS West Midlands Local Group and Chair of the Student Staff Liaison Committee. If you are an incoming/prospective PhD student please feel free to contact me via email.

On a lighter note, my main hobby is cooking, so if I am not at the desk working I am at the stove.
