Job description
  • Inference under stochastic ordering constraints based on censored data- There are many types of orders of varving degrees of strength for comparing lifetime distributions. These include stochastic ordering. likelihood ratio ordering- uniform stochastic ordering or hazard rate ordering etc. The plan is to consider inference for lifetime distributions under such ordering constraints based on different types of censored data.
  • Development of new and innovative application of data science tools and techniques in quality and reliability engineering. exploring interface “ith machine learning and statistical tools like design of experiments. multi-response optimization. improving methodologies for supply chain- optimimtioncapacity utilization etc.
