Research Interests and Approaches in Research

Most of my researches are driven by real life problems. In reserach, my preferred approach is to solve problems in a pragmatic way through statistical tools. The broad areas where my interests are pointed are design of experiments including optimal design, Bayesian analysis, public health, bostatistics, epidemiology, and spatial analysis.

My current master research students are working at the areas of longitudinal and spatial analyses. Undergraduate students are working at the areas of time series and public health.

I am interested to receive potential PhD students in any areas of applied statistics. Interested and prospective students can contact me at lutfor@isrt.ac.bd and discuss their topic and  funding issues.
