  • Profile

    I am currently an assistant professor in the Statistics group of the Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics at the University of Amsterdam. I have studied Mathematics at the University of Pisa, where I obtained my master's degree in March 2015. In April 2019 I received my PhD degree from Delft University of Technology with a thesis on smooth nonparametric estimation under shape constraints. Afterwards, I was a postdoctoral researcher at ORSTAT, KU Leuven until August 2020.


    My research focuses on survival analysis, non- and semi-parametric estimation methods and shape constrained statistical inference. Currently I am working on development of new methodologies within the framework of cure rate models for dealing with survival data in the presence of long-term survivors or cured individuals. I focus mainly on theoretical and methodological aspects of statistics but I am also interested in applications of statistical methods in the medical field. I have recently started a collaboration with Leiden University Medical Center and Princess Máxima Center for Pediatric Oncology on the project “Long term survival after childhood osteosarcoma: cure models”
