I'm an Assistant Professor in the ACMS Department, University of Notre Dame. I graduated with honors and received a Ph.D. degree in Applied Mathematics from Universita' degli Studi di Padova, Italy. I have completed my Ph.D. thesis as a Visiting Researcher at Stanford University, followed by a Postdoctoral position at University of California, San Diego and Stanford University. My main research interests are in stochastic analysis, multi-resolution approximation, numerical modeling and finite element analysis, adaptive Markov chain Monte Carlo estimation and use of computational models to inform clinical decision making under uncertainty.
Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics - Universita' degli Studi di Padova.

I'm looking for motivated undergraduate students determined to tackle research challenges in stochastic modeling, uncertainty quantification and related fields. Sophomore or Junior students preferred. Joint supervision with Prof. Bertanha in the Department of Economics is a possibility for students with Major/Minor in ACMS/Economics. You will significantly improve your Python skills, learn parallel computing and use high performance computing resources through the Center for Research Computing at the University of Notre Dame.
