Manuel Febrero


Professor at University of Santiago de Compostela (USC)


Coauthor of the R package “fda.usc devoted to functional data analysis, Full Professor of Statistics and Op. Res. in Spain since 2008 where he received the B.S. degree in Mathematics (1990) and his PhD in Statistics (1995). He has more than 50 publications in topics related with time series, bootstrap, spatial statistics, functional data, and on statistical methods applied to environmental control. He is the former head of the Department of Statistics, Mathematical Analysis and Optimization at the Faculty of Mathematics of the USC and academic coordinator of the PhD Interuniversity Program in Statistics and Op. Res. jointly organized by the universities of Santiago de Compostela, A Coruña and Vigo. He is also co-chair of the specialized group in Statistics for Functional Data of the group Computing & Statistics at ERCIM (European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics).

Variable Selection in Regression Models for Complex Data

A new algorithm for variable selection in regression models with scalar response is presented. This algorithm allows to combine the information of the covariates of different nature: functional, scalar, multivariate, categorical in a homogeneous way through the intensive use of distance correlation.

Abbie Jones

Abbie Jones



Statistical Officer at Government Statistical Services, UK


Recently completed her PhD thesis “Associations between Socio-economic Factors and Stillbirth in Brazil and the UK” at Lancaster University. This thesis aimed, using routine national datasets, to determine the primary socio-economic risk factors associated with stillbirth in Brazil and the UK, and to compare relative magnitudes of these associations between and within the two countries. The project involved collaboration with UFF as part of the ESRC PhD Partnering Scheme.

Fernando Barbalho

Fernando Almeida Barbalho

Federal Auditor at Secretaria do Tesouro Nacional (STN)

Doutor em Administração pela Universidade de Brasília (2014). Atualmente é auditor federal de finanças e controle da Secretaria do Tesouro Nacional (STN). Na STN atua como cientista de dados no Grupo Técnico de Comunicação Estratégica e Análise de Dados, utilizando o R como principal ferramenta de trabalho. A trajetória profissional e acadêmica mais recente está principalmente relacionada a dados abertos e desenvolvimento de produtos que resultem em maior transparência do Setor Público brasileiro. Participa de várias comunidades de prática que se formaram em torno do aplicativo de mensageria Telegram. Nos finais de semana costuma utilizar o R para investigar perguntas de pesquisa que escapam ao mundo das finanças públicas.
