About Me

I am a statistician with a background of computer science and am highly passionate about distributing knowledge. Teaching and research are the main interests in my life where I get the chance to connect with others while sharing my knowledge. I love to analyze data as it gives me the opportunity to apply the statistical theories I have learned. It is a great pleasure to help other researchers with their data to develop meaningful outcomes meanwhile improving my knowledge in different subject areas. I am open to learn more and ready to take challenges in trying new approaches.
