- She is the Principal Investigator of the Patient and public Involvement in Numerical aspects of Trials (PoINT): a project to identify priorities to involve patients and the public in numerical aspects of trials

- She is the co-Principal Investigator in an NHS Education project to test whether enhancing audit and feedback with a training session improves antibiotic prescribing in dentistry (TiPTAP - Training in Practice Targeting Antibiotic Prescribing (TiPTAP): A Randomised Controlled Trial). As TRiaDS - Translation Research in a Dental Setting - methodology research fellow, Beatriz is involved in the design and evaluation of quality improvement interventions in dentistry

- She is the lead statistician in two large National Institute for Health Research funded dental trials: SCRIPT and PIP

Beatriz is the statistician working the diagnostic accuracy longitudinal study EDNA.
