Section: 2 - Statistics and Biostatistics
Starting from August 2018, I am a PhD student at Big Insight. I will be under the supervision of Ida Scheel and my work will focus on how to model and predict the viral spreading of a product inside a network of customers. The project is connected with both theoretical and applied statistical problems such as dynamic modelling, big data analysis and model selection.
Before joining the University of Oslo, I graduated with a Master in statistics in my homecountry, Italy, at Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca. I had the chance to visit Norway while I was writing my master thesis, as I spent five months here in Oslo being supervised by Nils Lid Hjort. My thesis revolved around the creation of a model selection technique that could also be used in a high-dimensional data framework.
