Positions

Overview

  • With a strong academic background in applied statistics, data mining, industrial engineering, and research, Dr. Raju has more than six years of statistical and research expertise. With the rapid increase in the amount of data that is being collected, Dr. Raju believes that data mining techniques can effectively extract expedient information. He is particularly interested in using these contemporary statistical data mining and machine learning techniques since they have not been explored in the areas of nursing and health sciences research.
