Medical statistician gripped by methodological quality and ethics in 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.
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 determinants of chronic diseases.
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.
I joined the Centre for Statistics in Medicine (CSM) in May 2014 to work as a medical statistician within the Oxford Clinical Trials Research Unit (OCTRU). My current work is mainly focused on prognostic models and methodological research; more specifically assessing and proposing strategies to improve medical research quality, integrity and transparency.
I am also involved with systematic literature reviews and, as a fellow of the UK EQUATOR Centre, I teach in a number of courses offered by The EQUATOR Network and CSM.
