Luiz Max Carvalho
I am a Lecturer (Professor Adjunto) at the School of Applied Mathematics (EMAp), Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV). I hold a BSc in Microbiology and Immunology from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and a PhD in Evolutionary Biology from the University of Edinburgh (United Kingdom).
Biological processes (such as mutation, selection, development, infection, etc
I teach courses on Statistical Inference (undergraduate, graduate), Computational Statistics and Bayesian Statistics. See my CV for more information on papers and other academic publications (Google Scholar Profile). A collection of presentations I have given over the years is also available.
📫Preferred mode of communication is via email.
⚡Fun facts: Other than babbling about science, I like football ⚽(watching and playing), opera 🎼(watching and annoying others) and judo 🥋(watching and practising), in this particular order. Oh, and I’m also a dad and a husband 👶 👩❤️👨.
If you are a student and would like to work with me, I suggest you browse my Student Projects repo and see if anything tickles your curiosity.
