My research interests are in several areas of applied statistics such as biostatistics (especially in Statistical Genetics), survival analysis, Bayesian statistics, and generalized linear models.
I have great passion in teaching and statistical consulting. I also work at the Mathematics and Statistics Learning Center to improve students’ proficiency in Statistics. I have an interest in quantitative analysis for teaching effective assessment and also active learning and hands-on activities in undergraduate statistics courses.
