Claudia Neves has been a Lecturer in Statistics in the Department of Mathematics at King’s College London since 2021. Prior to this, she was a Lecturer in Theoretical Probability and Statistics at the University of Reading from 2015 to 2021, during which time she held an EPSRC Innovation Fellowship for the project "Multivariate Max-stable Processes with Application to the Forecasting of Multiple Hazards". Before joining Reading, she was Assistant Professor at the University of Aveiro, Portugal. Her primary field of expertise is in extreme value theory for modelling extreme and rare events. Her research centres around the development of statistical methodology to help solve challenging problems in several fields of applied sciences, ranging from meteorology and environment to finance.

Claudia received her PhD in Statistics and Operational Research in 2006 from the Faculty of Science, University of Lisbon. As well as holding a Visiting Research Fellowship at the University of Reading, Claudia has maintained to date strong links with academics and researchers based in Lisbon through her continued collaboration with the Centre of Statistics and its Applications. She has been teaching at the university level since 1997.
