I am an Assistant Professor of Clinical Data Sciences and Operations at the University of Southern California. I received my PhD in the field of Statistics from Utah State University in 2012. I graduated with an MS in Computer Science from the Lebanese American University in Beirut in 2006. I have also received an MS in Instructional Technology and Learning Sciences from Utah State University in 2012.


I do research in the field of statistical computing and data visualization. For that purpose, I use the R Statistical Environment extensively to develop new visualization techniques.
