Area of scientific activity

Area of scientific activity

Infectious diseases epidemiology and Mathematical Modeling: Development of mathematical models parametrized in epidemiological data, to be used by public health authorities as a tool to understand and predict disease transmission, with special focus on disease control strategies.

Specialization domain

I am biologist by training and I hold a double PhD degree in Population Biology (by Lisbon University, Portugal) and Life Sciences (by VU Amsterdam, The Netherlands). I am highly trained in nonlinear dynamics, bifurcation analysis and biostatistics. Using methods from dynamical systems theory and stochastic processes, I develop mathematical models applied to multi-strain and vector-borne diseases, evaluating the impact of public health intervention measures such as vaccination and vector control.

Current main scientific area

My scientific interests addresses significant mathematical problems and fundamental questions in public health, which requires a highly interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary approach. My research crosses the different epidemiological areas of infectious diseases, with special focus on disease control and prevention, by developing mathematical models which can be used by public health authorities as a tool to understand and predict the transmission of the disease and develop and evaluate the
introduction of intervention strategies including vector control and vaccination, with eventual industry collaboration. In this context I analyzed and keep analyzing empirical data sets, time series and spatiotemporal data, which includes parameter estimation and model selection for complex systems with chaotic dynamics and complex spatial structures like super-diffusive spreading.

Other scientific activities

In the past 5 years, I have participated in more than 30 international conferences and workshops with more than 45 scientific presentations as talks and many poster presentations. Selected Conferences w/ scientific presentation:
