Research interests

I am interested in Bayesian hierarchical modelling for panel and longitudinal data, in particular to address problems in biology, medicine and econometrics.

Specific research interests:

  • As PI in Sheffield for the STriTuVaD H2020 project, I am working on models that integrate computer simulations with clinical trials in order to reduce their length and size.

  • I am working on models for the analysis of super-resolution microscopy images.

  • I am developing shrinkage priors for variable selection.

  • I am interested in objective Bayesian methods and their relationship with measures of information.

  • I have been involved in developing models for systems biology, trying to understand gene regulatory networks.

  • I have devised mixture models capable of accommodating skewness and non-Gaussian tail behaviour in econometrics.
