I am at my last year of MSc in Math Engineering with focus in applied statistics. I discovered Stan during the bayesian statistics course and I used it for a data analysis project. I found really helpful this forum and I started to really like this community. After further exploring this world I also found an interesting collection of case studies which I recently started to explore.
Now I am looking around to find a master thesis topic both inside my university and externally. Since I would like to focus on bayesian statistics, I thought it could have worth it to post this topic. Is there anyone, possibly from an (european) university, interested in offering a master thesis on some bayesian subject? If so, I would be interested in exchaging some words (also by PM).
There are some very good statisticians doing Bayesian statistics and using Stan in Italy, for example in Trieste and Padova (@LeoEgidi and colleagues have been doing a lot). They might have good suggestions and/or opportunities.
Thanks Jonah for your nice introduction, As Jonah said, in Padova (where I got my PhD) and Trieste (where I am currently working as Postdoctoral researcher) people are using Stan for various projects, mainly in splines theory, sports models and biostatistics.
