Interests and Expertise


I enjoy applying statistics for solving real-world problems relating to Biostatistics, Survey Sampling, Nonparametric Statistics, Survival Analysis, Categorical Data Analysis, and Power Analysis. Before joining EMU, I held positions of research associate and research analyst at Wayne State University and University of Michigan where I generated and analyzed cancer and mental health data. I also held a faculty position with Texas A&M University-Kingsville. I am proficient in using SAS, SPSS, STATA, Minitab, R, MatLab, Mplus, SEER@Stat and Advanced SEER@Stat software.

I like to supervise undergraduate and graduate students' research, along with teaching statistics and mathematics courses. I appreciate collaborative and consulting opportunity in using statistical methodology and software towards data analysis and decision-making.
