: I am an Associate Professor at the Mathematics Department of Touro College, where I have been since 2010. I received a M.S. in Theoretical Physics from Kharkov State University (Ukraine) and M.S. and PhD in Applied Mathematics from University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, MI, USA) in 2006. From 2006 to 2010 I worked as a Computational Science Assistant Professor at the New College of Florida.

I published in the field of Numerical Methods for Fluid Mechanics developing new techniques for computational representation of vortex sheets and rings emitted by wing tips of airplanes, as well in the field of Numerical Simulations of Micromagnetic Phenomena using OOMMF codes developed at NIST. My most recent interest is in a broad field of Applied Statistics. I developed new courses in Bio-Statistics with R, Statistics for Actuaries with R, and Business Analytics with R. I teach Statistics research courses at the Graduate Program in Speech-Language Pathology at Touro College. I collaborated with Prof. Kidron from the Psychology Department on an article "Empathizing-Systemizing cognitive styles: effects of gender and academic degree" and with Prof. Lowman from California Academy of Sciences on statistical aspects of her Canopy Herbivory research.

Area(s) of Expertise

I can give consultation in the various areas of Applied and Mathematical Statistics using R and SPSS software packages. I would be delighted to run workshops in a number of different areas of statistics and research design using those packages.
