Ilaria Prosdocimi
Lecturer in Statistics
Department of Mathematical Sciences

Since April 2016 I am a Lectuer in Statistics in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Bath.
I obtained a Bachelor and a Master in Statistics applied to Social Sciences from the University of Padova, my hometown in Italy. During my master studies I spent one year as an Erasmus student at the K.U.Leuven, where I returned to do a PhD under the supervision of Irène Gijbels and Gerda Claeskens. My thesis discussed methods to extend traditional Generalised Additive Models to allow the (robust) estimation of mean and variance function. The very crude R code which implements these models can be installed from here. After 2 years working for a pharmaceutical company in 2012 I joined the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, CEH, where I worked as a statistician, mostly with the Flood Estimation Handbook team.

Details of my scientific vita can be found on ORCID, a list of my publications can be found on Google Scholar, on Scopus or ResearcherId, or on my own hand-curated list.

I sometimes tweet!
