Filippo Ascolani's Study Wins Another Award

Bocconi doctoral student Filippo Ascolani has been selected to receive the 2024 Lawrence D. Brown PhD Student Award by the US-based Institute of Mathematical Statistics, whose mission is to foster the development and dissemination of the theory and applications of statistics and probability. 

The Award, which is regarded as very prestigious within the scientific community and is bestowed on only three nominees each year, is yet another accolade for the paper “Nonparametric Priors with Full Range Borrowing of Information”. The paper, which had already garnered considerable acclaim, was written together with Beatrice FranzoliniAntonio Lijoi and Igor Prünster, who all belong to the Bocconi Department of Decision Sciences and the Bocconi Institute for Data Science and Analytics.

Filippo will defend his PhD thesis in January 2024 and is about to move to the United States, as assistant professor at the Department of Statistical Science of Duke University.
