Antonio (Tony) Linero joined The University of Texas at Austin faculty in 2019. Before joining UT Austin, he was an assistant professor in the Department of Statistics at Florida State University. He is a member of the International Society for Bayesian Analysis and the American Statistical Association. He serves as associate editor for Biometrics. In 2015, Linero 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. His research focuses on developing flexible and 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. His work also pursues 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.
