Laura Sacerdote is a scientific advisor to Evo Pricing and a full professor of Probability and Statistics at the Department of Mathematics of Turin University.
She coordinates the M. Sc. in Stochastics and Data Science of Torino University alongside administrative roles in Department and School commissions. Previously she has been a tenured research associate and then Associate Professor of Probability and Statistics at the Universities of Salerno and Turin.
Her interests focus on the application of the theory of stochastic processes to biological modelling with special focus on neuronal modelling, with a strong interdisciplinary character, including collaborations with Computer Scientists, Physicists, Neuroscientists, Statisticians and Mathematicians.
Roberta, Scientific Advisor
Roberta Sirovich is a scientific advisor to Evo Pricing and a researcher at the University of Torino. Her research interests include stochastic models for single neuron membrane potential, studying the stochastic leaky integrate and fire with discontinuities and jumps, and new definition of the firing time. She is involved with the parameters estimation of such models and hence she masters statistics for stochastic processes. Given her increasing interest for mathematical statistics, she also started working on information theoretical measures estimation, as well as the approximation of sequences of parameter dependent Markov chains.
Her education includes an MSc in Mathematics 2001 (University of Torino), PhD in Mathematics (University of Torino) and in Molecular Biology (University Joseph Fourier, Grenoble, France) 2006.
Oded, Scientific Advisor
Oded Koenigsberg is a scientific advisor to Evo Pricing, and he serves as a faculty in London Business School since 2012 and a faculty in Columbia University Graduate School of Business between 2002 to 2012. He covers a wide range of topics in marketing strategy, pricing and the interface between marketing and manufacturing, grounded in his 12-year business experience prior to becoming an academic.
He develops models that attempt to incorporate the cross-functional aspects of firms' marketing management decisions for leading academic journals. Oded holds a bachelor and master degrees in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research and has received his Ph.D. in Operations Management from Duke University.
Marco, Scientific Advisor
Marco Bertini is a scientific advisor to Evo Pricing, as well as an Associate Professor and head of the marketing subject area at ESADE (Barcelona, Spain), with a key focus on questions related to monetisation. Marco holds a DBA from Harvard Business School, an MBA from IESE, and undergraduate degrees in Arts and Commerce from the University of Melbourne.
His research investigates the psychology of pricing decisions, both for marketing scholars (Journal of Consumer Research, Journal of Marketing, Journal of Marketing Research and Marketing Science) and management professionals (Harvard Business Review and MIT Sloan Management Review). This work appears in print media and television — most recently in the BBC, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Financial Times, The Times and Wall Street Journal.
A native of Italy, Marco has also lived in Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom and now Spain. For more information, please visit www.marcobertini.com
