Professor Alessandra Brazzale (University of Padova)
In my talk I will present a number of case studies in astro and particle
physics I am currently involved in. These include the identification of
high-energy extra-galactic sources, the classification of variable stars
and the search for a signal in accelerator-based experiments. The
models and statistical methods we developed and employ range from
classical statistics, such as likelihood-based small-sample inference,
to Bayesian methods for machine learning in big data analysis.
