Silvia Colicino is a Biostatistician at Imperial College London; her focus is the application of Bayesian Analysis and Machine Learning to investigate causes of asthma phenotypes and their association to environmental factors.
Her role is to develop novel statistical tools that can be used to better understand the mechanisms of respiratory disease, and to predict the natural progression and potential remission of the condition.

Silvia holds a MSc in Biostatistics and Experimental Statistics from the University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy, a BSc in Statistics and Data Management and has been a Research Assistant at Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, Massachusetts.
