I am an MRC Skills Development Fellow studying the Spatial Epidemiology of Alcohol Availability, Consumption, and Harm, an honorary Research Fellow in the Sheffield Alcohol Group (SARG) of the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR), and a Lecturer in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Manchester.

In 2012, I joined the University of Sheffield as an EPSRC Research Associate within the School of Mathematics and Statistics, and moved to ScHARR in October 2015, as an NIHR Research Methods Fellow in statistics within the Design Trials and Statistics section (DTS). Before joining the University of Sheffield, I held a Visiting Assistant Professorship in Mathematics at the University of California-Riverside. I hold a BSc in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science from IST-Lisbon, an M.Sc. and a Ph.D. (2010) in Mathematics in from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and an M.Sc. in Statistics with Medical applications (2019) from the University of Sheffield.

Research interests

My current research focuses on spatial mathematics and statistics, statistical learning, and their applications to Alcohol research. I am particularly interested in the spatial epidemiology of alcohol availability, consumption, and harm through the analysis of routinely collected data. Having conducted research in both Mathematics and Statistics, I am currently interested in the interactions between these fields, and in particular, in the applications of spatial statistics and of machine learning to Health research.

While in DTS, I worked in the development of hospital performance measures relating to the quality and safety of care offered to patients, based on the analysis of large routine observational data, as well as the development and review of statistical methods in clinical trials. My research in Mathematics focuses on Commutative and Homological Algebra, with connections to Representation Theory, Algebraic Geometry and Singularity Theory.

  • EAACH: The spatial Epidemiology of Alcohol Availability, Consumption and Harm (MRC Skills Development fellowship). This project aims to understand the public health impact of geographical alcohol availability in the UK. It proposes to investigate the spatial relationship between availability, harm, and consumption, and in particular, to characterise the spatial aspects of the relationship between demographics and outlets that are responsible for harm and problematic consumption.

Teaching interests

I teach quantitative methods, from Mathematics to Medical Statistics, and Data Science.

Teaching activities

Since 2002, I have taught 8 quarters and 22 semesters of university level Mathematics. I have lectured mostly in Pure Mathematics (Calculus, Linear Algebra, Game theory, Optimization theory, Differential Equations and Mathematical Analysis). In 2014, I lectured in China for the Sheffield Financial Mathematics joint program with Nanjing Tech University, and mentored for the Sheffield Thesis Writing Mentoring program.

Most recently, I have contributed to teaching Statistics for the Masters in Public Health and the MBChB programme (including project supervision), and welcome further opportunities to supervise PhD and MSc projects within my research interests (broadly interpreted).

Professional activities and memberships

I am currently a member of the Royal Statistical Society, the London Mathematical Society, of the American Mathematical Society, of the European Women in Mathematics, the European Mathematical Society, and of the Portuguese Mathematical Society (SPM). I am a mentor in the faculty mentoring scheme and a member of the school's Medical Statistics group.

Since 2020, I am co-organiser of the Early Carer Alcohol Research Symposium, with a few colleagues from SARG. The symposium aimed to give early career researchers, from first year doctoral students to more experienced postdocs, a platform to network, share their research work and experiences, and interact with colleagues at different career stages.
