Description

The Ohio State University has named 10 young researchers as the 2019 cohort of President’s Postdoctoral Scholars. The recipients were selected from a diverse and highly competitive pool of national and international applicants. The cohort’s research ranges from applying tissue engineering methodology to improve plastic surgery patient’s outcomes, to using novel mass spectrometry-based approaches to study histone proteins, to analyzing farmers’ livelihood strategies using social science theories, to examining the inflammatory mediators of stress exposure and neurodevelopment in preterm infants.

We are pleased to announce that MBI Postdoc Wasiur R. Khuda Bukhsh is one of the scholars named to this year's cohort.

Wasiur holds a bachelor’s degree in statistics from the University of Calcutta, a master’s degree in statistics from the Indian Statistical Institute and a PhD from the Technische Universitat Darmstadt. His thesis work focused on developing model reduction techniques for agent-based and queuing systems with applications in communication networks. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Mathematical Biosciences Institute at Ohio State. He is interested in applications of probability theory, statistical inference and survival analysis to problems in epidemiology, biology and other branches of science. His goal is to design better public health interventions.
