Hello! My name is Cristiano Guidorzi and I am associate professor at the University of Ferrara. I work in the field of High-Energy Astrophysics, Time Domain Astronomy and Transient Sky. I study explosive events like massive stars that end up their brief (astronomical standards) and intense life producing so-called gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and related phenomena . I am also interested in timing analysis techniques (e.g., power spectral analysis, singular spectrum analysis, wavelets), stochastic vs. deterministic processes, non-linear dynamical systems, and their astrophysical applications. I also have a penchant for astrostatistics and for Bayesian analysis: PCA, exploratory data analysis, Markov-Chain Monte-Carlo techniques. Last but not least, I am still on the learning curve of machine learning techniques and eager to progress quickly.
