OCTRU Medical Statistician
I graduated in Nutrition at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in 2003, and started working with research in the same year. Both my MSc (2006) and PhD (2010) focused on Epidemiology with a strong component of medical statistics.
I have worked with a wide variety of epidemiological issues including maternal and child health; developmental origin of health and diseases (DOHaD); nutritional epidemiology; and determinants of chronic diseases. My background as a researcher encompasses collaborations with several universities and research centres, mainly conducting statistical analysis of complex population-based databases.
In 2013, I moved to the University of Oxford to work as a postdoctoral research assistant at the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. I joined OCTRU in May 2014, to work as a Medical Statistician and since than I have been working in several clinical trials, covering a wide variety of medical subjects.
The projects with which I have been involved highlight my commitment to the field of healthcare epidemiology, and my interests include both clinical and methodological research.
