Sofia Massa is a Senior Statistician in the Nuffield Department of Population Health, University of Oxford. She has an MSc in Mathematics (University of Udine, Italy) and a PhD in Statistical Science (University of Padua, Italy). Before joining NDPH she was a postdoc at the University of Padua and a Departmental Lecturer at the Department of Statistics, University of Oxford where she was also the course co-ordinator of the MSc in Applied Statistics.
Her main research interests are on probabilistic graphical models on aspects related to evidence synthesis, gene-set analysis and neuropsychology modelling. She is also working on statistical models for high-dimensional population health studies.
