Opportunities for high-school students

While I am often away during the summer, and hence I can rarely mentor high-school students, here is a link to Research Internships for High School Students at Stanford.

Here is a video of my TEDx presentation at the event organized by Gunn High School, on February 25,2017 Data, Science, and the Truth.

Opportunities for undergraduates

If you are a Stanford Undergraduate interested in a quantitative approach to sciences, check out the new Data Science major (it inherits all the good of Mathematical and Computational Science and adds some exciting opportunities). I am an advisor in this major and generally available for meetings on tuesday afternoons: check my Data Science/MCS advising page.

Check out the Data Science for Social Good summer program, with which I have been involved for a while.

If you are attending a college different from Stanford, there are a number of programs that you might find interesting. Some are designed in particular for students attending a community college. I run one called Inclusive Mentoring in Data Science.

Opportunities for graduates

If you are currently at Stanford and interested in my work, please contact me. A good idea is to take one of the classes I teach or attend the journal club/seminars I run.

You are invited to consider being involved in mentorship programs: check out Inclusive Mentoring in Data Science . There is also a summer program in Data Science for Social Good which can benefit from your participation in mentor capacity.

If you are interested in graduate studies at Stanford in our area of research, you can apply to the Statistics PhD/master program or to the Biomedical Data Science and ICME programs.

Stanford has a program for Visiting Student Researchers from other universities. You should be aware that there are fees associated to this. The France-Stanford Center for Interdisciplinary Studies offers fellowships that would help with this if you qualify.


I strongly believe that diversity is enriching (that's partly why I left Italy for California :). If you are from a under-served group, who is under-represented in academia, it might be particularly challenging to pursue advanced studies. The university has a number of resources aiming at bridging this gap. Please check out the IDEAL web-page.
