About Me
I manage the teaching of statistics and R programming for the whole Psychology department at the University of Edinburgh. I previously worked at the Universities of Edinburgh and St Andrews applying statistical analysis to biomedical data and using machine learning to predict protein function and make wikis smarter. I hold a PhD and MSc in Informatics from the University of Edinburgh and a BSc and MSc in Industrial Biotechnology from the Universita' Statale di Milano Bicocca, Italy. I speak English, Italian, French and a bit of German. I live with my son, and we like hiking, cycling, experimental theatre and indie animation movies.
