Clara Grazian received a joint PhD in 2016 from Université Paris-Dauphine under the supervision of Prof. Christian Robert and from Sapienza Università di Roma under the supervision of Prof. Brunero Liseo.
Her research interests include: Bayesian statistics, mixture models, spatio-temporal modelling and copula models and variable selection, with applications in climatology, epidemiology, psychology and genetics.
Before joining UNSW, she was Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Oxford, working on understanding genomic mechanisms conferring resistance to tuberculosis and at the Università degli Studi "Gabriele d'Annunzio" working on understanding the effect of pollution on human health.
