Fabrizio Leisen

Professor of Statistics

Biography

Fabrizio Leisen is a Professor of Statistics in the department of Mathematics, King’s College London. Prior to King’s, he was a Professor at the University of Nottingham and a Reader at the University of Kent. Fabrizio held Assistant Professor positions in Spain at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and the Universidad de Navarra. Previously, he was a Research Assistant at the Università di Pavia. He has a PhD in Mathematics, with a Thesis in Probability from the Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia. Fabrizio is an Associate Editor for Bayesian Analysis, Statistics and Probability Letters and Statistical Methods and Applications. 

Research

Fabrizio’s research spans theory and applications, Bayesian inference and probability. An important part of his work focuses on Bayesian nonparametric methods. He introduced priors to deal with situations where the usual exchangeability assumption is not appropriate. He also focused on the foundations of Bayesian Statistics, discussing prior elicitation from an objective point of view or model elicitation from the predictive perspective.

Key research areas:

  • Bayesian Inference with a particular focus on nonparametric methods, objective Bayesian analysis and foundation of Bayesian inference
  • Model selection methods with the knockoff procedure
  • Probability and Stochastic Processes

Teaching

Fabrizio teaches Computational Statistics and the Probability and Statistics Skills sessions. Currently, he co-supervises a PhD student at the Università di Bologna.
