Dr. Abdul A. Hussein

Abdul A. Hussein, Ph.D. (Alberta)

(519) 253-3000 x3033
Lambton Tower 9-104

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.
