I am a PhD student in Statistics at the University of Oxford, working on Bayesian inference for likelihood-free models with the use of machine learning and deep learning tools. I am interested in applying likelihood-free inference methods to the setting of Numerical Weather Prediction. My supervisors are Dr. Ritabrata Dutta (Uni. Warwick) and Prof. Geoff Nicholls (Uni. Oxford).
Prior to my PhD studies, I obtained a Bachelor degree in Physical Engineering from Politecnico di Torino (Italy). Afterwards, I studied towards an MSc in Physics of Complex Systems awarded by Politecnico di Torino and Université Paris-Sud, France. I have carried out my MSc thesis at LightOn, a machine learning startup in Paris.
|Apr 9, 2021||I’ve just released a preprint on Generalized Bayesian Likelihood-Free Inference using Scoring rules with pseudo-marginal MCMC. We believe it is a promising bridge between these two lines of research. Preliminary version, feedback is welcome!|
|Feb 11, 2021||Our methodological paper on designing an optimal lockdown considering an epidemiological model has been accepted for publication by PLOS Computational Biology!|
|Feb 10, 2021||My supervisor (Dr. Dutta) and I are holding a (virtual) seminar on Friday 12th February at Imperial College about our recent preprint.|
|Dec 9, 2020||Our paper describing the likelihood-free inference package ABCpy has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Statistical Software!|
