Welcome Message

I take the opportunity to wish you a warmhearted welcome to my official personal website. Here you can find information about me, my life’s philosophy, research work, supervision, publication and other scholarly activities. Apart from this official website I’m also visible online through my research dissemination, consultancy, and blog related to teaching and learning.

I am particularly passionate about strengthening endeavors aimed at provision of evidence-based sustainable development through provision of reliable statistics generated using tested statistical methods facilitated by modern computational methodologies. In this line, I am a proponent of localization of sustainable development goals; having pioneered a successful localization of MDGs in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM), Uganda. I am available for discussions aimed at application of statistics and computing to facilitate sustainable development.

Research Interests

Wesonga Ronald is a Statistician and a Specialist in Statistical Computing. Over the last decade, he has developed vast experience in data management, including, but not limited to design of data collection tools, interview techniques, design of computer data entry screens, data entry, data validation tools, data cleaning, data tabulation and data analysis and presentation.

He has also got experience in the development and management of database management systems, information system management and network systems including managing remote sensing information and communication technologies that include satellite and radar systems. His major interest now is data modeling for understanding the prevailing situation on aspects of development (MDGs), agriculture, climate, infrastructure, governance and health (HIV/AIDS). His PhD research is focused on aspects of data modeling using stochastic optimization techniques.

Oh yeah! Wesonga Ronald has a happy marriage with Annie, did you say, his better half? Alright, that is it!

New Research Direction

Dr. Ronald Wesonga shifts research focus to the study of thresholds. He defines threshold as the magnitude or intensity that must be exceeded or not exceeded for a certain reaction, phenomenon, result, or condition to occur or be manifested. He notes that thresholds have resulted in so many decisions of all kinds, desirable or undesirable. He intends to examine models and develop frameworks and algorithms to stochastically determine appropriate thresholds for general and specific problems. Join him with enriching ideas, drop him your problem or even funding for some activity.
