I’m a 4th year PhD candidate in Statistical Science at Duke. I’m doing research on model selection, Bayesian robustness, and foundations of statistical inference under the supervision of Jim Berger. Before that, I obtained a BSc in Statistics (2011) and an MSc in Statistics and Operations Research (2013), both from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. I wrote my Master’s thesis in the Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Unit at IRB Barcelona, where I worked on sequential experimental design for RNA-seq studies with David Rossell
