Bayesian nonparametrics

I am a former postdoc at the Department of Statistics, working with Yee Whye Teh. My subject of research is Bayesian Nonparametrics. I received a Bachelor degree in Economics and Business from the University of Padua, a master in Economics and a PhD in Statistics at Bocconi University. Currently I am Lecturer in Statistics at Lancaster University.
