More About Me

Research Interests

Probability, Statistics and Data Science (PSDS) education for grades 6 to 16; Nonparametric modeling and estimate; Modeling, estimation, prediction and testing in linear designs with dependent error structures using robust nonparametric methods, i.e. rank-based statistical modeling of hierarchical/nested designs;


Developing Machine Learning (ML) course and Data Science materials; Expecting an external grant on a collaborative proposal in PSDS; Working with students in some research topics in PS and ML;


  • MATH 262: R/Applied Statistics

    An introduction to statistics with emphasis on applications. Topics include the description of data with numerical summaries and graphs, the production of data through sampling and experimental design, techniques of making inferences from data such as confidence intervals and hypothesis tests for both categorical and quantitative data. The course includes an introduction to computer analysis of data with a statistical computing package. (Those who have completed MATH 360 may not enroll in this course for credit, and no student may reveive credit for more than one 200-level statisticcs course, including credit for more than one of the following courses: BIOL 250, ECON 205, GEOG 278, MATH 242, MATH 262, PLSC 251, PSYC 250, and SOCL 211.) Offered every semester

  • MATH 361: Statistics

    Sampling distributions, point and interval estimation, and tests of hypothesis. Topics also include: regression and correlation, the analysis of variance, and nonparametric statistics. Prerequisites: MATH 360 or permission of the instructor. Offered every spring
