Hi! Welcome to my webpage. I am Roberta De Vito, Assistant Professor at Brown University in the department of Biostatistics and at the Data Science Institute. Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Princeton University in the Department of Computer Science, advised by Barbara Engelhardt. I was a former visiting PhD Student at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health under the supervision of Giovanni Parmigiani and Lorenzo Trippa. I graduated at University of Padua in Statistical Science in 2016 advised by Ruggero Bellio.
The focus of my research is to develop statistical modeling for the analysis of big and high-throughput data, such as epidemiological and genomic data analysis. In this big picture, I use Bayesian approach and machine learning techniques to investigate biological issues, such as cancer, and depression.
