Welcome to my webpage

Here you can find some information about me and my work. 

My main area of research is Probabilty and Statistics. Specifically, I am interested  in statistical inference for stochastic processes, random networks and graphs, high dimensional statistics, change-point detection and statistical learning.  

Since 2008 I work at Departamento de EstatísticaInstituto de Matemática e EstatísticaUniversidade de São Paulo. Since 201o I am a research productivity fellow of  CNPq (National Council for Scientific and Technological Development).

At the moment I coordinate the research project “Structural selection for stochastic processes in high dimensions”, founded by FAPESP (São Paulo State Research Foundation) and I am a member of Neuromat - Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics, also supported by FAPESP. 

In 2013 I won the L’Oréal-UNESCO-ABC prize “For women in science” in the area of Mathematics.
