This is Umberto Picchini‘s research blog. I am associate professor in Mathematical Statistics at University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden.

I will write about methods and algorithms for statistical inference and stochastic modelling. Presently my intention is to discuss methods and tools that I have used in my research, with the aim to provide a synthetic (but not simplistic) review. This is my first experience at blogging, so let’s see how far I manage to go. For a slightly more detailed description of my goals, see the first post.

There are several ways to get in touch with me.

You can also follow me on twitter at @uPicchini.

Needless to say, this blog reflects my own personal views and not my employer’s.
