Researcher and Lecturer in Statistics

Universidade Federal do Paraná


I’m a Researcher and Lecturer in the Statistics Department of the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR), Brazil. I’am a member of the Laboratory of Statistics and Geoinformation (LEG), where I deal mainly with statistical spatial models applied to environmental and ecological problems, specially those dealing with marine fisheries resources.

In 2019 I received a doctorate degree in Statistics and Agricultural Experimentation from University of São Paulo (USP), Brazil. Originally, I have a bachelor degree in Oceanography from University of Vale do Itajaí (UNIVALI), with a master’s degree in Ecology from Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC).
