I am currently a professor in the Department of Statistics at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil. I received my PhD in Statistics  in 2011 from the University of Connecticut, Storrs, USA, under the supervision of Jun Yan and Dipak K. Dey. My main research fields of interests are: Generalized Linear Mixed Models (GLMM), Bayesian Statistics, Spatial Statistics, Gaussian Markov Random Fields and Asymmetrical Distributions. I focus my research on application of these methodologies in ecological, criminal and health related problems.
