Antonio D'Ambrosio is researcher in Statistics at the Department of Economics and Statistics of the University of Naples Federico II.

He took a degree in Economics at University of Naples Federico II.

From November 2004 to November 2007 he was Ph.D. student at Department
of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Naples Federico II (supervisor
prof. dr. Roberta Siciliano).

In that time he studied at Charles University of Prague (working with
prof. dr. Jaromìr Antoch) as well as he studied at Leiden University (working
with prof. dr. Willem Heiser and prof. dr. Ab Mooijaart).

He took the Ph.D. in Statistics by defending a Ph.D. thesis named Tree-based
methods for Data Editing and Preference Rankings.

He was research assistant at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics
of the University of Naples Federico II, working at the European Research
Project integrated Web Services Platform for the facilitation of fraud
detection in health care e-government service - iWebCare.

He was visiting researcher at the Department of Psychology - Section methods and statistics - of the
Leiden University (The Netherands).

He is member of the STAD research group.

He is member of the International Statistical Institute (ISI).

He is member of the International Association for Statistical Computing
(IASC).

He is member of the Classification and Data Analysis Group of the Italian
Statistical Society (CLADAG).

He is member of the Italian Statistical Society (SIS).

Main research interests are classificaton and clustering. Within these
frameworks, it's so fascinating dealing with preference rankings.
