Professional Background

Having been trained as a physician in Lahore, Pakistan, I came to the United States to advance my knowledge in public health. I received my MPH at KU and now I serve as an advisor and instructor in that same graduate program. Students benefit from my expertise in quantitative data management and analysis, research design and development; and implementation and maintenance of databases utilizing MS Access, REDCap as well as other online tools. Researchers benefit as well from my statistical expertise in multiple areas, including descriptive and multi-variable analyses using SAS.

My teaching interests include data management in public health, survey development, database design and secondary data analysis of large national datasets.
PRVM 875 (Data management in Public Health) is a three-credit hour graduate level course necessary for basic epidemiologic or administrative quantitative methods. Students learn about a variety of publicly available data sets and the course covers the basics of survey design, variable and dataset design, creation and maintenance plus basic descriptive analyses.
