He has a PhD on theoretical immunology from University of Oporto. He joined the LSHTM in November 2010 as a member of the data analysis team of the MalariaGen, an international network for Genetic Epidemiology of Malaria. Since 2012 he is part of Chris Drakeley's group (in the Department of Infection and Immunology - ITD).

Teaching

He has been lecturing in the in-house Analysis and Design of Research Studies course. He has also been teaching statistics and epidemiology overseas, namely, in PhD programmes for biomedical researchers in Portugal and Cape Verde. 

Research

Currently he studies the statistics aspects of using serological data to assess malaria transmission intensity, its putative changes over time, and certification of malaria elimination. He is also involved in projects aiming to understand Malaria and Zika virus epidemiology in Cape Verde.
