Currently, I am working with Professor Mike West on Approximate Bayesian Computation. Our focus is on Sequential Monte Carlo Methods, and also Non-linear Regression based on Mixture Modeling. The main motivating application of our work is dynamic modelling of complex stochastic systems.
Before joining Duke, I studied at the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics at University of Sao Paulo (IME-USP, Brazil). I received a Bachelor's degree in Statistics in 2006 and a Master's degree in Statistics in 2009.In a general view, my reserach interests include Bayesian Computational Methods, Foundations of Bayesian Inference, Decision Analysis, among other topics. In the other sections of this webpage, more information can be found about my work, including: research projects and teaching experience.
