Dr Danilo Petti



Danilo Petti undertook his undergraduate study in Economics at the University of Salerno to then continue with an MSc in Statistics and Actuarial Science (graduated in Sep. 2019, first of his court). In 2021 he graduated with an MSc in Statistics with Distinction at University College London to then complete a PhD in Statistics at the University of Salerno in 2023. During his doctoral years, he simultaneously followed and successfully completed the course in Advanced Statistics and Actuarial Science at the University of Florence. He is also a certified trainer (score 980/1000) of Statistical Analysis System (SAS). He is now interested in various research areas in statistical methodology and applications, including computational statistics, statistical learning methods, graphical models, causal inference, survival analysis and copula models.
