Here is an archival repository of
courses I have taught in recent years.
My research interests lie in modeling correlated data collected
over time or/and in clusters. In particular, time series analysis
and models for overdispersed categorical data. I like to participate
in real projects working side by side with scientists and engineers
giving the best statistical advice to the projects. Application
areas I have worked with include, environment, transportation,
agricultural and bio-mechanical engineering.

- Toastmasters clubs provide opportunities to individuals
from all walks of life to get together with the objective of improving
public speaking skills. Toastmasters provides many educational
goals from Competent Toastmasters (CTM) to Distinguished Toastmasters.
There are clubs all over the world and
I highly recommend this experience to everyone--to those who are
confident that they give good speeches as well as those who fear at
the thought of a live audience. I belonged to the Columbia, MD club
and became a CTM in 1995. I plan to get back to it soon.
- Conversation between Yamadharma and Dharmaraya
Yaksha prashna (Questions Posed by a Yaksha) is a famous
episode from the scriptural epic Mahabharatha. The Pandava princes
were asked several puzzling questions by a yaksha. Dharmaraya,
the eldest of the Pandavas, answers these questions appropriately.
Yaksha reveals his real identity. He is Yama, the god of death.
