I have been around Mathematical Sciences from my very early childhood, and I have always greatly enjoyed the beauty and power that mathematics affords to problem solving. Statistical Science in particular and specifically Statistical Machine Learning and Data Science are my passion, my profession and to some extent my vocation. The flexibility and power of probabilistic reasoning along with the richness and vast applicability of statistical models both fascinate and enthuse me immensely. My mission as a professor of statistical science is to generously, joyfully and rigorously share the full extent of my knowledge and expertise in this exciting field with the ultimate goal of empowering all the students that God graciously sends my way. Indeed, I always envision my students acquiring state-of-the-art knowledge in statistical science and ultimately developing into world class experts and pioneers.
