Assistant Professor

Room No.



Mathematics and Applied Mathematics





I have been working as academician since year 2011. I enjoyed working because of my deep interest lies in teaching and exchanging knowledge, and being a lecturer requires me to be actively involved in research and education program. All these experiences have equipped me with a lot of analytical thinking skills, problem solving techniques and thus taught me to learn and appreciate quality, integrity as well as independence in work.

My working experience is circling in the education line and statistical research. I have always looked for an opportunity to join any research in various field using real data. The contribution that I can offer in statistical analysis part is to support both qualitative and quantitative research findings. I want to strengthen my knowledge and programming skills application with the hope to diversify my skills, learn new things and at the same time offering my existing research skills with the team.
