I’m a postdoctoral researcher at the Data Science Institute of Hasselt University since December 2020. I did a PhD in Statistics at the University of Louvain under the supervision of Prof. Philippe Lambert.

My area of research focuses on Bayesian Statistics. In particular, I develop approximate Bayesian methods that permit fast sampling-free inference schemes and explore how such methods can be used to improve the efficiency of Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithms.

Currently, I am working on new Bayesian methodologies for fast and flexible inference in infectious disease models. I love coding in general and developed several R packages. One of my latest project is the EpiLPS package (https://epilps.com/), a tool to estimate key epidemiologic parameters.
