Ammar M. Sarhan
I got my B.Sc in Mathematics and M.Sc in Applied Mathematics from Mathematics department at Mansoura university, Egypt in 1985 and 1988, respectively. In 1996, I got my Ph.D in Probability and Statistics (Reliability) from Institute of Mathematics, Gdansk University, Poland, under supervision of my beloved Professor F. Grabski. After I got my Ph.D degree, I worked at different universities at different ranks starting with Mansoura (Egypt), then King Saud (Saudi Arabia), Dalhousie University (Canada), St. Mary's (Canada). Currently, I am working at St. Francis Xavier university, Canada. I'm generally interested in the development of application of statistical methods to scientific problems and the development of general statistical methodologies driven by these applications. I have numerous major distinct but also related research areas. These areas including: reliability and survival analysis, statistical inference using Bayesian and non-Bayesian methods, statistical computing, competing risks models, univariate and multivariate distributions, and statistical inference based on masked data. Currently, I am looking on applying competing risks model and masked data in industrial engineering and quantitative finance as well as the application of accelerated life testing with competing risks models in life sciences.
