I completed my PhD in
Statistics at McGill University in 2006.
My research interests are in survival
analysis and other medical
applications of statistics. My thesis
is entitled, "Stationarity
prevalent cohort study with follow-up". Here is a recent paper
which I co-authored on testing the assumptions for the analysis
of survival data arising from a prevalent cohort study.
I have also been interested in statistical methods for
audits. Here is a paper (pdf) I co-authored on the subject,
published in The
American Statistician in 2008.
I am also interested in sports statistics. I
have worked with
undergraduate students on adjusted plus-minus ratings in the
NBA, and on the relative age effect phenomenon, and the effects
of steroid useage in
Major League Baseball.
For a complete list of my publications, please see my CV.
I was raised in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and am the son of
Italian immigrants. I am thus fluent in both French and
Italian. My wife Isadora is from Golden, Colorado, and she completed her PhD in School Psychology at the University
of Minnesota. In May 2013, we welcomed a new addition to our family, our first child, Fabian Addona. We love curling
up on the couch together (along with our cat, Grigia) and making each other laugh.
As a proud Canadian, I am a huge hockey fan (Isadora loves the
Colorado Avalanche and my favorite team is the
Montreal Canadiens, of course). I also love football (NY Jets)
and baseball (I still miss the Montreal Expos ...).
