About Me

Seeing is inference from incomplete information

The logical thinking and rigorous mathematical proof behind this science entail a great power in solving a few practical problems.

Research Interests

Robust regression, longitudinal data analysis, Survival analysis, missing data analysis, categorical data analysis, time series

Data Analysis

A longitudinal study is an observational research method in which data is gathered for the same subjects repeatedly over a period of time. Survival analysis is generally defined as a set of methods for analyzing data where the outcome variable is the time until the occurrence of an event of interest. The event can be death, occurrence of a disease, marriage, divorce, etc.
