Research Interests

Model and algorithm development enhanced by application of statistical and computationally intensive techniques to generate information and knowledge is presented with the global ever-increasing problem of small multivariable and big data phenomena occurring both in temporal and spatial fields.  Apprehension of such a challenge is not a function of statistics or computing in isolation, but a collaborative dynamism, corroborated by both. We have attempted through a number of publications and work accomplished, shown that the world can be a better place through information and knowledge creation by theory and application, however more knowledge gaps keep revealing, hence demanding more research. For instance, the non-communicable diseases have become a silent killer and are almost going unnoticed especially in developing and middle-income countries due to lack of reliable data. Currently, our research activities are focused on statistical modeling of predictors and risk factors associated with the burden of non-communicable diseases.
