Welcome to the personal webpage of Paulo Canas Rodrigues!


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

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 30 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.
