Hello, my name is Ameer. I am a second-year PhD Student in the Department of Biostatistics at the University of Washington supervised by Professors Daniela Witten and Jon Wakefield. Previously I worked for two years as a research and data consultant for the Global Education Monitoring Report at UNESCO. Before then, I completed my Master of Science in Statistical Sciences at the University of Toronto where I focused on applied and computational statistics, Bayesian inference, simulation, and optimization.
Typically, I find interdisciplinary projects involving both statistical methodology development and tangible applications to be the most interesting research problems. Take a look at my Portfolio and CV to learn a little more about my academic and professional experiences. I am always looking for interesting collaborations so if you have a project in mind, please do feel free to reach out!
A Little About Me Personally
Outside of my work, I like to hike and bike in the summer, skate in the winter, and play squash year-round. I’m also into baking, tennis, board games, and really enjoy a good book.
Thanks for reading!
