My research activity aims to integrate statistical methods with various applications through cross-disciplinary collaborations. As an applied statistician I have been working closely with scientists with different expertise (e.g. engineers, geographers, computer scientists, etc.) in order to yield important practical results as well as developments of new statistical techniques.

During my research activity in UK and Ireland I worked on the development of original methodologies and gathered a broad experience in analyzing different types of data. 

At the University of Bristol, I worked on statistical methods for assessing uncertainty and risk in natural hazardsAt Maynooth University I worked on regression models for spatial data. During my PhD studies at the University College Dublin I developed latent variable models to summarize and visualize multiple information in biological and social networks and cluster complex categorical data. These methods find application in a wide range of research areas including social sciences, health sciences and marketing.

I am interested in teaching methods and tools to promote diversity in the Statistics, Data Science and R communities for this reason I am mentor at R-Ladies and leader of the teaching team at Forwards the R Foundation taskforce on women and other under-represented groups.
