XI. MOST SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTIONS

My main contribution to the field of Statistics is developing robust and efficient minimum distance estimators. Specifically, I have developed a significant optimization tool, for the general class of sums of absolute multivariate linear functionals, which works even when linear programming methods fail. Using intuition and mathematics I have obtained innovative models in the areas:
· multivariate frequency count,
· multivariate reliability,
· linear, log-linear and logit models.

Statistical consulting work has resulted in joint research with colleagues in various disciplines. I have been the Coordinator of Statistics consulting Lab for five years.

Estimators with desirable properties in these and other models have also been obtained; thus giving Statistics a wider scope of application. I have contributed to the applied mathematics community through participation in the Department of Mathematics at NJIT. Areas where I have had an impact towards the development of the department are
·
Building the MS and PhD program in Statistics: running Ph.D. level courses, and contributing to the prelim exam, and guiding Ph.D. Student
· statistics teamwork, such as undergraduate statistics advisor, minor advisor, coordinator of the undergraduate statistics course
· seminar and workshop series
