Sonia Petrone is an Italian mathematical statistician, known for her use of Bernstein polynomials for nonparametric methods in Bayesian statistics.[RBP][BDE][CPP] With Patrizia Campagnoli and Giovanni Petris she is the author of the book Dynamic Linear Models with R (Springer, 2009).[DLM]

Education and career[edit]

Petrone earned a laurea in economics and social science from Bocconi University. She completed her Ph.D. in 1989 at the University of Trento. After working at the University of Pavia from 1991 to 1998, and as one of the founding faculty members at the University of Insubria from 1998 to 2001, she became a full professor of statistics at Bocconi University.[1]

Petrone was the president of the International Society for Bayesian Analysis for the 2014 term.[2]

Recognition[edit]

With Sara Wade and Silvia Mongelluzzo, Petrone won the Lindley Prize of the International Society for Bayesian Analysis in 2010.[3] She is also a Fellow of the International Society for Bayesian Analysis.[4]
