I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Psychometrics at DPSS
, University of Padova
, and member of Psicostat
My research area mainly focuses on the development and application of statistical methods to the analysis and interpretation of data arising from behavioral studies. Most of it concentrates on statistical methods for handling uncertainty in behavioral and cognitive data (e.g., fuzzy statistics), dynamic modeling of computerized tracking data, and information-theoretic methods in statistical estimation (e.g., maximum entropy). I am also interested in applications of Bayesian statistics to behavioral and cognitive sciences and measurement problems.
I did doctoral research at the University of Trento, where I earned my PhD, and KU Leuven. As part of my post-doctorate research, I worked at the MTA Wigner Research Centre for Physics (NAP-B PATTERN Group).
I am member of the following scientific societies: SIS
(Italian Statistics Society), IBS
(International Biometric Society, Italian region), EUSFLAT
(European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technology), AIP
(Italian Association of Psychology, section of Experimental Psychology).
