I joined Bocconi as a Full Professor in 2021. Previous to that, I was ICREA Research Professor based at Universitat Pompeu Fabra. I have held other positions at Warwick, Oxford and Lancaster, and have also worked in Berlin, Osaka, Paris, Madrid and Lima. In 2010 I was awarded the Royal Statistical Society's Guy Medal. In 2013 I founded the first Master in Data Science in Europe at Barcelona Graduate School of Economics, and in 2016 the Data Science Center, which operated at the intersection of scientific research and consulting, both of which I directed until 2021.
Current editorial activities: co-editor Biometrika, associate editor SIAM/ASA Journal of Uncertaintly Quantification
My research is primarily in computational Statistics, but my work spans a wide range of topics in the intersection of Statistics, Machine Learning, Probability and Applied Mathematics. I am very interested in the intersection of Data and Social Science
