Paola Sebastiani, Ph.D. joined the Department of Biostatistics in 2003 as an Associate Professor, after holding faculty positions in Italy, England and United States. She is author of over 70 peer-reviewed publications in theoretical and methodological statistics, artificial intelligence and computational biology. She is member of the editorial board of the Machine Learning journal and Evaluation of Intelligent Systems. She is also a regular reviewer for major journals in statistics and computer science, and serves on the program committee of several international conferences at the interface between statistics and artificial intelligence. Paola’s research interests focus primarily on the development of Bayesian methods and their application to a wide spectrum of problems, ranging from cognitive robotics to bioinformatics, from biosurveillance to knowledge discovery. She is particularly interested in the development of automated analytical methods and many of her methodological contributions have been implemented in computer programs, such as Bayesware Discoverer: the first publicly available program for the automated discovery of Bayesian networks from incomplete databases, and Caged, a program for Bayesian model-based clustering of gene expression profiles measured in temporal experiments. Paola is founder of Bayesware LLC, a software company developing and commercializing knowledge discovery programs based Bayesian methods.
