Dr Farag Shuweihdi
I joined the University of Leeds as Research fellow in August 2018. From 2017-2016, I joined the Department of Statistics, University of Leeds, as research visitor. From 2015-2016, I worked at Manchester Cancer Research Center.
I obtained my PhD in Statistics from University of Leeds in 2010. I also have MSc in Statistics form Benghazi University in 1999.
My main research interests focus on developing statistical methodologies with real life applications. In particular, I have three broad areas of interest, computational statistics, multivariate analysis and classification. I work on classification approaches, such discriminant analysis, neural network, and decision tree, vector support machine and culstering algorithms. I conduct advanced statistical analysis such as generalized linear models and Survival analysis models, using cross-sectional and longitudinal data. Also, I have excellent experience with analysing structural equation models (SEM).
