Antonio Linero joined The University of Texas at Austin faculty in 2019. Before joining UT Austin, Antonio was an Assistant Professor in the Statistics department at Florida State University. He is a member of the International Society for Bayesian Analysis, the American Statistical Association, and serves as Associate Editor for Biometrics. In 2015, Antonio received the Laplace award from the Section on Bayesian Statistical Science of the American Statistical Association. His research has been supported by the National Science Foundation and through work with the Science of Test Research Consortium.

PhD Statistics,University of Florida, 2015.
My research is broadly focused on developing flexible Bayesian methods. My work has focused on developing appropriate Bayesian methods for complex longitudinal data, as well as developing model selection and variable selection tools within the Bayesian nonparametric framework for high dimensional problems. I am also pursuing research in Bayesian nonparametrics for missing data and causal inference problems in which analysts are forced to (i) confront the curse of dimensionality when estimating low-dimensional effects of interest and (ii) are required to make in-principle unverifiable assumptions. Developing flexible Bayesian nonparametric models which give robust inferences in these scenarios is fraught with subtle challenges.
