Personal profile


Dr. Adriano Polpo is a statistician who likes to develop new methods and to study the statistical theory underlying practical approaches, and to do so properly he considers that it is necessary to work with real challenges. In the search of such challenges, he was introduced to many different problems in Statistics and collaborated with many researchers in other fields.

Adriano is a graduate of the State University of Campinas, has obtained his PhD from the University of Sao Paulo, and has taken a post-doctoral sabbatical at Florida State University. He has been mainly working with reliability/survival analysis, regression models for counting data and Bayesian nonparametric methods. He has been also working with statistical hypothesis testing. He was Associate Professor at Federal University of Sao Carlos. Currently, Adriano is an Associate Professor at the University of Western Australia.

His research agenda aims at providing solutions to many different problems, from functional analysis of human gait, studies of the impact of copper nano-particles in algae (carbon farming), latency to treatment in OCD patients, to methods for the proper use of statistical hypothesis tests.
