Data Analyst

Dr Cristiane Forgiarini

MSc (UNISINOS), PhD (UFRGS)

Cristiane believes in using the power of statistics and modelling to understand the complexity of biological data. She started her academic career studying the regeneration, life histories and ecological functionality of plant species from the Atlantic rainforest in Brazil, and completed her PhD in Botany at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil) in collaboration with the Technical University of Munich (Germany). It was there that she combined ecological and molecular data to understand the evolution and population distribution of endangered plant species to make predictions on efficacy of species conservation approaches.

Since joining Sibelius in 2018, Cristiane has been investigating the health impact of various plant extracts.
