I have been working on Markov processes, multi-parameter stochastic processes, martingale theory, order statistics, extreme value theory and related limiting distributions. Recently, I have involved with probabilistic model building and experimental designs on gear selectivity studies in fisheries.


I have taught various courses from entry level statistics for science, business and economics students as well as nursing students, to more advanced courses to our major and graduated students in Statistics. My teaching philosophy is “the successes of the students are my own successes in my professional career”.
