Research interests: Applied Harmonic Analysis, Wavelet Analysis, Frame Theory, Biomedical Image Analysis (Neuroscience Imaging, Metastatic Liver Cancer Detection in Abdominal CT with contrast). More recently, I work on local oscillation normalization in unconstraint illumination conditions (this area of research directly applies to unconstraint illumination normalization for face recognition), on Extension Principles and on Directional Representations with applications to neuroscience imaging.

MATH 4397-01 Mathematics of General Insurance NEW COURSE
FALL 2016 TU-TH 230-4PM
Math 2431 (Calculus III), Math 3338
Description of the course: The course begins with a quick review of the concept of moments for discrete and continuous random variables. Mathematical expectation, multidimensional random variables and conditioning of random variables, Distributions of claim sizes, fitting models to claim number and size data, short-term risk models, premium calculation principles (EVP, SDP, VP, ZUP, QP), maximum and minimum premiums, Bayesian credibility history, mixed random variables, reinsurance.
course will require the use of R for statistical computations. The
expectation is for students to build the mathematical background required
for the actuarial

Please don't ask me questions by e-mail. In the case, we have to explain several things to you. We may not be able to supply a satisfactory answer via e-mail. Meeting with us is always more helpful. Besides UH is a university with a real, not a virtual campus. However, if time is an issue, please, submit your question by e-mail and wait for our response.
