Dr Angela Luna Hernandez is a lecturer in Social Stastics within Social Statistics and Demography at the University of Southampton.

My main interests are Small Area Estimation, Survey Sampling and Official Statistics. DrSampling and Estimation in the context of Official Statistics have always been my main interests. After finishing my bachelor in Statistics at Universidad Nacional de Colombia in 2003, I had the opportunity to learn and experience in detail the process of production of official statistics while working at the Colombian national statistical office. There I got involved in the design and estimation of all kind of surveys, traditional and new, and also had the chance to be part of the team conducting the Colombian 2005 Population Census.

In 2010 I decided it was time to go back to school and started a Masters in Statistics at the State University of Campinas - UNICAMP in Brazil. I got a first approach to model-based estimation for survey data and in particular, to Small Area Estimation in the context of repeated surveys under guidance of Professors Luiz K. Hotta and Fernando Moura (UFRJ). After finishing my Masters in 2012, I moved to Southampton to start my PhD under supervision of Dr. Nikos Tzavidis and Professor Li Chun Zhang, working on the use of Structure Preserving Estimators, with sponsoring from ESRC and ONS. I completed my PhD in Social Statistics in 2016.
