Ahmad Alzaghal

Assistant Professor 10 Months Email Whitman Hall, Room 180E
My research interests lie in Mathematical Statistics; specifically, in generalized distributions – theory and applications. My research focuses on developing new families of statistical distributions and studying their properties, estimation techniques, and applications to real world scenarios.
