Marzia Angela Cremona

Adjunct Assistant Professor
Marzia Angela


Marzia received a B.Sc. (2009) and M.Sc. (2011) in Mathematics from Università degli Studi di Milano. In 2016 she obtained a Ph.D. in Mathematical Models and Methods in Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, with a thesis titled, Statistical methods for omics data (Advisor: Piercesare Secchi; Co-advisors: Laura M. Sangalli and Simone Vantini).

Currently, Marzia is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Operations and Decision Systems at Université Laval. In 2016 she joined the Department of Statistics at the Pennsylvania State University, working as Postdoctoral Researcher with Francesca Chiaromonte and Kateryna D. Makova, and from 2017 as Bruce Lindsay Visiting Assistant Professor. Marzia is also an affiliate faculty at the CHU de Québec – Université Laval research center (Population health and optimal health practices axis).

She is also a member of the Center for Medical Genomics of the Pennsylvania State University, and of the Big Data Research Center of Université Laval, and of CIRRELT (Interuniversity Research Centre on Enterprise, Networks, Logistics and Transportation).
