Short Bio:  I am currently Associate Professor of Econometrics at University Ca' Foscari of Venice. I was previously assistant professor at University Ca' Foscari, University of Brescia, and research fellow at GRETA Associates. I received a Ph.D. in Mathematics, from University Paris Dauphine, a Ph.D. in Economics from University Ca' Foscari of Venice, and a M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics from ENSAE-University Paris Dauphine. I have been visiting University Paris Sud, University of Bristol and University Paris Dauphine. I am researching in time series analysis, Bayesian analysis, Monte Carlo methods and stochastic filtering.
