Beatrice Franzolini

I am a postdoctoral research fellow in Statistics at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) , in Singapore. I am working under the mentorship of Maria De Iorio.
I am a member of the BayesLab at the Bocconi Institute for Data Science and Analytics ( BIDSA) and member of the Complex Data Modeling Research Network.
Prior to joining A*STAR, I was a PhD student in Statistics at Bocconi University , Italy, under the supervision of Prof. Antonio Lijoi and Prof. Igor Prünster.
My research interests are in Bayesian nonparametrics, Bayesian modelling of complex data and biostatistics.
