I received a Master degree in Mathematics from the University of Udine (Italy) and a PhD in Statistics (with Doctor Europaeus mention) from the University of Padua (Italy).
My research interests are in the area of graphical models and the study of the combination of evidence from different sources. I also collaborate on research problems in bioinformatics.
I joined the Department of Statistics in September 2010.
Graphical models, structural meta-analysis, algebraic statistics, bioinformatics.
