Assoc. Prof.

Carlos Manuel Agra Coelho

Carlos A. Coelho is Associate Professor, withHabilitation, at the Mathematics Department of Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia of Universidade Nova de Lisboa. Ph.D. in Biostatistics by the University of Michigan, and Elected Member of the International Statistical Institute, his main areas of research are Mathematical Statistics and Distribution Theory, namely exact and near-exact distributions for likelihood ratio test statistics used in Multivariate Analysis. Areas of interest are also Estimation, Univariate and Multivariate Linear, Generalized Linear and Mixed Models, as well as Computational Statistics. In a 2004 paper in the Journal of Multivariate Analysis, he laid the foundations for what he called ’near-exact distributions’. Since then these distributions have been successfully applied to a large number of statistics, with more than 40 papers published on this topic.
