Her main activity develops within the project QSeca. Other tasks in which she is involved or collaborates relate to (1) the influence of weather on air quality; (2) air quality spatial-temporal modeling; (3) time-series analysis. She has received her PhD in 2011 with Air Quality Spatio-Temporal Forecasting in the Urban Region of Lisbon, a hybrid stochastic and neural approach.
During the last years she has focused on neural and geostatistical air quality modeling. Additionally she is also interested on the impact of climate variability and weather patterns and extremes on air quality and human mortality. She has also participated as member of the research team of several FCT projects and EU funded projects, in particular, FUME (7PQ) and SinesBioAr (Life-Ambiente).
