The Team meeting from confinement during COVID19 quarantine
Amanda Fernández-Fontelo is a postdoctoral researcher at the Chair of Statistics at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany. She earned her Master’s degree in Statistics, Software and Operations Research at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Spain) in 2015, and her Ph.D. in Mathematics with a major in statistics at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain) in 2018. Her main research is focused on statistical methods for functional data classification. Additionally, she is also interested in statistical methods for integer-valued time series. [web]
Alejandra Cabaña is an Associate Professor at the Department of Mathematics at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. She earned a PhD in Mathematics (1993) at Universidad Central de Venezuela. Her research activities are centered in the field of mathematical statistics, goodness of fit tests based on transformed empirical processes. She is also interested in modeling aspects of time series, functional data and extremes. [web]
David Moriña currently works as a postdoctoral researcher at Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM). He earned a PhD in Mathematics (2013) at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. His area of research interest is focused in mathematical modelling applied to health sciences, especially in the handling and analysis of longitudinal data, specifically time series data. He has broad experience in the design, development and analysis of clinical trials and epidemiological studies-working in several research centres, including the Technological Center in Nutrition and Health (CTNS), the Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology (CREAL) and the Catalan Institute of Oncology, developing new models for cancer research.
