About me

Hi, my name is Lucas. I’m from Brazil and currently, I’m a P.h.D. Candidate in Statistics at UConn.

About this website, it is intended to exercise my writing in English. As a P.h.D. student, it has been hard to find time for blogging. However, I will write here about interesting (at least to me) things whenever is possible. Additionally, you can find here information about my Talks, ongoing projects, and my CV.
