Welcome to the personal webpage of Paulo Canas Rodrigues!


I completed my PhD in Statistics in 2012 at Nova University of Lisbon, Portugal, and, since 2013, have been Assistant Professor at the Department of Statistics of the Federal University of Bahia, Brazil. I'm currently also the Research Director of CAST -- Center for Applied Statistics and Data Analytics at University of Tampere, Finland, (since April 2015).

I am an ISI Elected member and currently:

My research interests include:
  • High-dimensional data modeling, low-rank approximations and weighted low-rank approximations
  • Time series and singular spectrum analysis
  • Robust statistics
  • Big data and visualization
  • Modelling and analyse Genotype-by-Environment interactions and QTL-by-Environment interactions
  • Applications to plant sciences, genetics, finances and environmental sciences
I have authored/coauthored more than 35 research articles and am currently Co-Editor of Biometrical Letters (since 2013), and Managing Editor of SOIC – Statistics, Optimization and Information Computing (since 213). Please consider to submit your work to these journals.
