Francesca Greselin received her Laurea in mathematics at the University of Trento, Italy, in 1983. Afterward, she worked as a Researcher at Telettra R&D, an Italian Telecommunication Company, for three years. She had a visiting position at the University of Asuncion, Paraguay, where she was a member of a cooperation project for five years, granted by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, for the development of the academic curricula of Software Engineering and Electronic Engineering in the Faculty of Science and Technology. From 1998 to 2005, she has been an Assistant Professor of statistics at the University of Milano, Bicocca, Italy. Greselin is currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Quantitative Methods for Economics and Business Sciences at the University of Milano-Bicocca. Her research interests are mainly in economic inequality, especially with reference to inequality measures, their properties, statistical inference, limit theorems, and applications; mixture models, especially within the classification framework by Gaussian and t-mixtures; algorithms, especially for the maximum likelihood estimation in presence of incomplete data (as the EM) and under constraints (patterned covariance matrices) and for sampling from huge sample spaces, by complete enumeration (Fréchet class) or by Markov chains (Partial order sets and their linear extensions). She has published in the areas of methodological statistics and stochastic processes.
