About me

Welcome to my website! My name is Massimiliano Russo. I am a Junior Faculty at Harvard University, within the Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics of the Brigham and Women’s Hospital & Harvard Medical School.

Before I was a postdoctoral research fellow in Statistics within the Harvard-MIT Center for Regulatory Science (CRS) at Harvard Medical School (HMS). I have been also part of Prof. Lorenzo Trippa’s group at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) in the Department of Data Sciences, and collaborated with Prof. Jeff Miller of the department of Biostatistics, Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH).

I obtained my PhD in Statistics at the University of Padova (Italy), where I worked on Bayesian methods for tensor factorization models under the supervision Prof. Bruno Scarpa. During my PhD I spent about one year and an half as a visiting research scholar at Duke University, NC, USA working under the supervision of Prof. David B. Dunson.

My main research interests include: Bayesian statistics; Tensor factorization for categorical variables; Hierarchical models; Decision theory; Analysis and design of clinical trials; Machine learning; and, Computational statistics.

In this website you can find my curriculum vitae, the list of my publications and some statistical material (slides, tutorials etc.).

I have also a GitHub profile.
