Dr. Abdulkadir Hussein


Chair, Graduate Studies Programs

B.Sc. (Trieste), M.Sc., Ph.D. (Alberta)

LT 9-104
Ext. 3033




Research Interests:
My research areas include Sequential analysis and its applications, Survival and event history analysis, Finite mixtures and their applications, Statistical processes control, Health outcomes research.

I have successfully supervised several master’s students over the past 5 years.  I am currently seeking candidates who have strong background in the theory of probability, and stochastic processes and their estimation techniques. I have several projects with funding that could potentially lead to successful Ph.D thesis.
