## Vanessa Sehaber

I am Vanessa F. Sehaber, a PhD student from the Federal University of Paraná State(UFPR), Curitiba, Paraná State, Brazil. I am a visiting student in CHICAS and my current research is focussed on Epidemiological Surveillance, where I am working with spatial statistical methods to explain the occurrence of leprosy in Paraná State.

I hold a BSc degree in Statistics (UFPR). I completed my MSc in Numerical Methods and Engineering (UFPR), and my PhD is in the same area, with a specific focus on Mathematical Programming.

Currently, I am interested in statistical quality control, multivariate statistical, experiment design, survival, spatial analyses.
