I was trained in Probability and Statistics at the Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon, Portugal. I worked as a statistician at the Southern Portuguese Cancer Registry were I was responsible for the data management and analysis of the cancer data. In 2005, I joined the Cancer Survival Group in the Non-communicable Disease Epidemiology Unit at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) in London, were I currently work as a research fellow in Statistics.

Teaching

I have been involved in various teaching modules from the Medical Statistics MSc (Introduction to Bayesian Analysis and Introduction to SAS) and in the Cancer Survival short courses run by the Cancer Survival Group at LSHTM (http://www.lshtm.ac.uk/ncdeu/cancersurvival/index.htm).

Research

My main interest is in cancer survival methods, and I am currently working on a range of projects that aim to quantify, describe and explain patterns and trends in cancer survival by socio-economic group, geographic area, as well as extending the methodology and tools for cancer survival analysis.
