Research Interests

My inclination is towards applied statistical research, which I have been pursuing for close to two decades now. My doctoral thesis was on improving accuracy of a useful public health measure. Since then I have worked with epidemiologists and medical researchers both in the United States and in India.

My applied research is not at the cost of neglecting theoretical development. I have publications in Statistics in Medicine, Annals of The Institute of Statistical Mathematics, Sankhya and Statistica Sinica where publications with solid foundation in mathematical and empirical theory are only accepted.

I also have substantial experience in industrial research. I have provided service to one of the major airlines of the world and have spearheaded the development of a forecasting suite for passenger arrival and resource allocation in its 14 large stations. In my current position I am providing support to the second largest CRO in the drug development domain.

I have also undertaken various consulting problems in different domains, such as understanding viewer’s expectations for a major vernacular news channel, categorizing villages in two states of South India according to their risk potential for disbursement of loans on behalf of a micro-finance organization. I was also involved in a major effort of customer satisfaction review on behalf of one of the largest multinational corporation.

Overall I have a very wide variety of research interests and experiences and am a strong believer in adaptation and application of statistical techniques into varied domains. I consider myself an analytics expert and I enjoy working with all types of data.
