Visiting scholar in Bocconi, Milan

Posted in Seminar/Conference by Julyan Arbel on 31 March 2011

I am currently visiting Bocconi University for two weeks (following Pierre’s visit to Vancouver). The team here is very active in Bayesian nonparametrics, no surprise with Italy being the cradle of exchangeability with de Finetti’s work. I talk with Sonia Petrone and Pietro Muliere, and can interact with many PhD students in topics related with mine (Maria Anna di Lucca, Steffen Ventz and Sara Wade among others). The whole team plans to attend to this summer BNP conference in Veracruz, Mexico, for which I submitted a poster abstract today on Multidimensional covariate dependent Dirichlet processes. By the way, I am looking for someone for sharing a (cheaper rate) double room in Veracruz…
Bocconi’s building is very sophisticated, though looking like a bunker from outside, the architect had the good idea to separate the rooms with glass walls. Which makes it possible, and quite nice, to scribble equations all around on the wall. By chance I will give a talk for the PhD student seminar next Friday. I shall present our work with Robin and Nicolas on the Estimation of a regression for rank data with an application to the Eurovision Song Contest.
