Fernando Quintana. Past Chair 2021.
Fernando is a Professor in Statistics at the Department of Statistics, Pontifical Catholic University of Chile. His main research interest lies in Bayesian Nonparametric methods, and their connection to random partition models, including product partition models. Main fields of application include clustering and classification problems, spatio-temporal modeling and problems arising in psychometry. For more information, visit his website.
Alessandra Guglielmi. Program Chair 2020-2021.
Alessandra is a Professor in Statistics at the Department of Mathematics, Politecnico di Milano, Italy. Her main research field has always been Bayesian nonparametrics. Her recent interests focus on mixture models and their connection to random partition models, but also on some applied problems in medicine, healthcare management, and population density dynamics.

Fabrizio Leisen. Treasurer 2020-2021.
Fabrizio is a Professor of Statistics at the University of Nottingham. His research mainly focuses on Bayesian nonparametrics, Bayesian computations and Objective Bayes. Fabrizio's research investigated the use on nonparametric priors in non-exchangeable settings. Applications of his methodologies are in biostatistics, finance, survival analysis, social sciences and network modelling. For more information, visit his website.
Andrés Felipe Barrientos. Secretary 2021-2022.
Felipe is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at Florida State University. His research focuses on developing and studying methodological procedures in statistical science that incorporate flexible Bayesian modeling and approaches for data privacy with special interest in regression density estimation, hypothesis testing, probabilistic methods for complex data, and differentially private procedures.
