Graciela Muniz-Terrera is a Senior Lecturer in Biostatistics and Epidemiology in the Centre for Dementia Prevention, CCBS.
Graciela Muniz-Terrera is a biostatistician who trained in pure mathematics and statistics in Uruguay before moving to the UK, where she completed her PhD at the University of Cambridge. She worked at the MRC Biostatistics Unit in Cambridge for several years before taking up a position at UCL. In 2015, she joined the Centre for Dementia Prevention (CDP), where she leads a team working in the application and development of sound analytical methods to gain a better understanding of dementia and the ageing process. Graciela is Vice chair of the ISTAART (The Alzheimer's Association International Society to Advance Alzheimer's Research and Treatment) Professional Interest Area on Data and Design Analytics (DaDA).
Graciela is interested in the application and development of new analytical methods to improve knowledge about normative and pathological cognitive and physical declines experienced by older adults. She is particularly interested in understanding how individuals change relative to their previous level of functioning (within-person changes) as the manifestations of these changes are those that usually concern older adults. She is also interested in the development of analytical tools to predict the risk of developing dementia.
