Dr Claudia Neves
Senior Lecturer in Statistics
Claudia Neves joined the Department of Mathematics at King’s College London as Lecturer in Statistics in 2021 and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2023. Prior to this, from 2015 to 2021, she was a Lecturer in Theoretical Probability and Statistics at the University of Reading 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 the environment to insurance and 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.
