About me

Hello! I am Francesca Panero, Assistant Professor at the Department of Statistics of the London School of Economics. In 2022 I obtained a PhD in Statistics from the University of Oxford.

Before the PhD, I have spent quite some time (BSc and MSc) at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Turin and at Collegio Carlo Alberto.

In terms of research, I mostly work on Bayesian models in the following directions: complex networks, disclosure risk assessment (privacy stuff) and Gaussian process modelling. I am also exploring fair machine learning.

If you are interested in doing a PhD with me, please do get in touch specifying which of my areas of research would be of interest to you. Note that applications for scholarships at LSE close around mid-January, so getting in contact in October/November is recommended in order to have enough time to prepare a research proposal.

I live in London, but you will often find me in Rome.
