Postdoctoral researcher

Medical University of Vienna

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Medical Statistics, Informatics and Intelligent Systems. My research is focused on methods and software for clinical trials designs involving multiple endpoints.

I graduated in Mathematics at the University of Barcelona (UB) in 2014. During my bachelor degree studies, I focused my interests on topics related to Statistics. I obtained my Master’s degree in Statistics and Operations Research (MESIO UPC-UB), a joint programme by the University of Barcelona (UB) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya-BarcelonaTECH (UPC), in 2016. I obtained my PhD at the Department of Statistics and Operations Research of the UPC under the supervision of Prof. Guadalupe Gómez Melis.
