Teaching Experience

I developed and taught graduate courses in consulting, computing and data analysis, multivariate analysis, mathematical methods for statisticians, large sample theory and statistical inference. I also taught courses in parametric estimation, data analysis, advanced computational statistics, categorical data analysis, experimental design, operation research, mathematical statistics, statistical methods, sampling theory with applications, and mathematical methods for statisticians at both undergraduate and graduate level.
