I joined the mathematics department at UL Lafayette as Assistant Professor of Statistics in Fall 2016. Upon receiving my Ph.D. in 2009, I joined Kyungpook National University at Daegu, South Korea as Assistant Professor. After that I was a Visiting Scientist at the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata, a Postdoc at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and a Visiting Assistant Professor at Northern Illinois University. My main research interests are in the areas of Big data clustering, Combinatoric probability, Directional Statistics. I am very active in research; but, I am also very serious about my teaching.
