Mohammadreza Armandpour

Statistics Ph.D. Student at Texas A&M University

I am a last year Ph.D. student at Texas A&M Univeristy, Department of Statistics. I am honored to be advised by Mingyan Zhou at the University of Texas at Austin, Debdeep Pati and Jianhua Huang at the Texas A&M University. I also had the opportunity to work at the DATA (Data Analytics at Texas A&M) Lab, supervised by Xia Hu during my second year.
Before joining Texas A&M, I did my undergraduate studies in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics (double majors) at Sharif University of Technology, where I also did my Masters in Applied Mathematics with focus on False Discovery Rate, advised by Kasra Alishahi.
I did my last summer internship as a machine learnig researcher at ELi Lilly and Company .
