Biography
Dr. Pontiggia’s original research interest is noncooperative stochastic games. In particular she has been studying variations of a twoperson, noncooperative stochastic game, inspired by the famous redandblack gambling problem presented by Dubins and Savage. Currently, her major interest in game theory concerns developing a cooperative game theory approach to classification analysis, based on the use of the Shapley Value imputation. Her newest research interest concerns statistical methods for pharmaceutical and public health research. In particular she is working on the development of statistical methods that can be used to model data originated in the pharmaceutical and public health fields.
