"Abracadabra" let the data speak! This is my job. I always work with real data as main figure. I like to see the practical use of statistics. I have a weakness for categorical data and analysis of parametric clustering.

I feel comfortable with the Bayesian approach to statistics, since among many other virtues it provides the possibility of new graphical representations that help disseminate the results. Good analysis is of little use if the results are not presented in an understandable way, and this is not an easy task.

Main interests: Bayesian data analysis, Applied statistics, Discrete data, Model-based clustering, Customer Analysis, Ecological inference, Election results,  Stylometric  analysis, Authorship attribution, Epidemiology, Biostatistics.
