Dr Ana Paula Palacios BSc, MSc, PhD, FHEA

Senior Lecturer in Statistics

Dr Palacios joined the University of Greenwich in September 2016 as a Senior Lecturer in Statistics after being a Lecturer in Statistics at Plymouth University for over three years. Previously, she held a teaching assistant position at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (2008-2013) where she also obtained here PhD with cum laude distinction in October 2012.

Dr Palacios's primary research interest is in applied statistics, in particular stochastic processes and Bayesian statistics. Her research includes applications to a variety of real-world problems including bacterial growth, software reliability, criminology and degradation data, among others.

Ana Paula has a BSc in Economics in Mathematics from the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba (Argentina). Early in her career, as a researcher of the Stock Market in Córdoba and the Institute of Economy and Finance (UNC), she focused on the study of the labour market and income distribution.
