Previously, I was a Postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley, where I worked with
Perry de Valpine &
Chris Paciorek on computational methods for Bayesian hierarchical models.
I am also part of the core team maintaining NIMBLE, a flexible R-based software for Bayesian hierarchial models (and more!).
[20/06/2021] I have started serving as an Associate Editor for the Software section of The New England Journal of Statistics in Data Science (NEJSDS), the new official journal of the New England Statistical Society (NESS).
[28/01/2021] New paper using NIMBLE for IRT models, Computational methods for Bayesian semiparametric Item Response Theory models, out on arXiv.
[18/01/2021] Our paper Centered Partition Processes: Informative Priors for Clustering has been accepted for publication as a Discussion paper. Contributions for the Discussion can be submitted until February 23th, 2021!
