Currently, I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Radford University. I earned my bachelor's degree in mathematics at Jahangirnagar University, Bangladesh. I then completed my master's degree majoring in mathematics at Lamar University, Texas, in 2011 and received my Ph.D. degree in statistics at the University of South Carolina in 2016. My research efforts have been primarily devoted to developing statistical methods for group testing (pool testing) data with both single and multiple infections. I also enjoy writing user-friendly computer program, package, and application (Shiny app) to aid public health officials in implementing the statistical methods. Please note that my full legal name is Md Shamim Sarker, but I currently use "Md S. Warasi" for conference and publication.
