I joined the Department of Mathematics at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette as an assistant professor in August 2017. I received my PhD in Mathematics with concentration in Statistics in May 2017 from the University of Mississippi. My research interests lie in Statistics, especially in Time Series, Nonparametric Statistics, Robust Statistics and Correlated Data Analysis.
