I have hold a Bachelor of Science in Statistics from Debub University, and a master’s degree in Public Health Epidemiology and Biostatistics from The University of Gondar. Recently, I have earned a PhD degree from the School of Public Health, The University of Queensland.

Prior to joining UQ initially as a PhD student in Epidemiology and later as a research officer statistician in the School of Veterinary Science, I worked as Lecturer at the Institute of Public Health, University of Gondar, where I have taught Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Methods courses to both undergraduate and postgraduate health sciences and medical students. Also, while working in the Institute, I have supervised a number of masters of public health (MPH) students and I had chance to be involved in a number of research projects which ultimately lead to publications in referred journals.

In my role as a research officer statistician, I run a research collaboration with staff and RHD students in the School of Veterinary Science. I provide statistical consultancy on design, analysis and interpretation of findings.

I use R and Stata routines for handling and analysing data. However, I am very well familiar with SPSS, MLwiN, WinBUGS/OpenBUGS and Epi-Info statistical packages.
