About Pooja Sengupta

I have received my bachelor’s degree, B.Sc. Statistics (honours) and MSc in Statistics from the University of Calcutta and joined the Old Dominion University, Virginia, USA in 2010 to pursue my PhD in Computational and Applied Mathematics with a concentration in Statistics. There I also received an MS in Computational and Applied Mathematics with a concentration in Statistics. My research interests lie in inflated discrete distributions, multivariate discrete distributions, generalized linear models, longitudinal data analysis. While in the US I have taught courses in Statistics and Probability. I have worked as a lecturer at West Bengal State University, Department of Statistics; where I have taught post graduate course in Statistics such as linear algebra, linear model, regression analysis, statistical computation using R and designs of experiment. I have presented research papers at different prestigious conferences, the most recent one is the International Indian Statistical Association, 2014 conference at Riverside, California. I am also the recipient of the “Best student paper presentation” award at the 2014 conference of Virginia Academy of Science Chapter, American Statistical Association. I am currently also involved in a UGC project funded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development where I am the content writer of two papers in the Statistics post-graduate curriculum.
