Clinical Trials Statistician gripped by methodological quality and ethics in medical research
I graduated with a BSc in Nutrition from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in 2003, followed by an MSc (2006) and PhD (2010) at the same institution; both focused on Epidemiology with a strong component of Statistics.
In 2013, I moved to the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (University of Oxford) to work as a postdoctoral research assistant in the INTERGROWTH-21st project.
My background as a researcher includes collaborations with several universities and research centres, focusing mainly on the data analysis of large population-based epidemiological studies to investigate Nutritional Epidemiology; Maternal and Child Health; Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD); and determinants of chronic diseases.
I joined the Centre for Statistics in Medicine (CSM) in May 2014 to work as a medical statistican within the Oxford Clinical Trials Research Unit (OCTRU). My current work is mainly focused on Randomised Clinical Trials of non-pharmacological interventions.
I am also involved with systematic literature reviews, development and evaluation of prognostic models, and methodological research to improve medical investigation. As a fellow of the UK EQUATOR Centre, I teach in a number of courses offered by The EQUATOR Network and CSM.
2012 Selected to participate in the VI Latin American Nutrition Leadership Programme by the Latin American Nutrition Society (SLAN).
2009 International Atomic Energy Agency Fellowship for an outstanding abstract presented during the 6th World Congress on Developmental Origins of Health and Disease, IAEA.
2009 Young Investigator Award, DOHaD Society.
