Hi, my name is Lucas. I’m a Brazilian P.h.D. student at the UConn Department of Statistics. My interests involve statistical computing, spatial statistics, Bayesian inference, and novel applications of statistical methods. In addition, I do like to learn about programming languages and new technologies.

In this website you may found some random blog posts (mainly about R or statistics), my CV, and ongoing projects.

Apart from work, my hobbies are mainly playing soccer, hiking and hanging out with my friends.
