I am originally from Bosnia-Herzegovina, and completed undergraduate studies at Providence College in RI as well as master’s studies at Brown University, also in RI. I chose to come to the Biostatistics Department at University of South Carolina for the flexibility of the program (you can tailor it to your career and academic goals) and for the highly enthusiastic faculty. They are always ready to help you and get you involved in their research. I have previously worked as a Data Scientist and Statistician in industry. When not working on my research or coursework, you may find me outdoors, walking my dog, or at home playing music.
My research interests are in longitudinal data analysis, statistical methods for joint modeling, Bayesian statistics, and machine learning.
While I have not started my dissertation work yet, I hope to focus on the area of longitudinal data analysis.
