Passionate about Statistics research and teaching. I am developing Bayesian statistical models for analysing spatial data. Along with my PhD research, I am working as a Sessional academic at QUT School of Maths. I got recognised as an Associate Fellow at Higher Education Academy, UK in 2019. I also have a teaching experience of 3.5 years in a University of Bangladesh before I started PhD here at QUT and ACEMS. I would like to continue my research works and would also try to contribute to Statistics teaching and learning after completion of my PhD.

MS by Research in Statistics, Biostatistics & Informatics from University of Dhaka(2013)
Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Statistics, Biostatistics & Informatics from University of Dhaka(2011)
worked as a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Applied Statistics, East West University, Dhaka, Bangladesh (September 2016 to August 2017)
worked as a Lecturer in the Department of Applied Statistics, East West University, Dhaka, Bangladesh (September 2013 to August 2016)
worked as Deputy Sub-Project Manager of sub-project titled, "Covariate Dependent Models for Correlated Outcomes in Longitudinal Data Analysis" funded by World bank and implemented by UGC, Bangladesh (July 2014 to July, 2017)
This research provides a tool so that people can use readily available data from online cancer atlases, and understand patterns for multiple cancer types together.
Prizes, awards and special recognition
SSA -QLD Young Student Scholarship for presenting in Young Statisticians Conference 2019 was awarded to Farzana Jahan. Awarded from the Statistical Society of Australia- QLD Branch.
Statistical Society of Australia (QLD Branch) offered scholarship to cover the registration fees for presenting and participating in Young Statisticians Conference, October 1-2, 2019 at Canberra this year
Complementary Student place in UseR! 2018 conference was awarded to Farzana Jahan. Awarded from the Statistical Society of Australia.
The useR! conference (The conference for the users of R) is in Australia (Brisbane) for the first time this year (July 10th to 13th). There will be some great national and international statistical speakers and delegates, and a wide range of R courses. See the conference web site for details: https://user2018.r-project.org/.
The Statistical Society of Australia have partnered with useR! to offer four conference registrations for our student members. Student members must be signed up with the SSA until at least the end of the year (new members welcome http://www.statsoc.org.au/membership/types-of-membership/) and be willing to spend some time at the Statistical Society’s booth at the conference. If you’d like to have one of the places then please send a brief paragraph on why you’d like to represent the Society at the conference to email@example.com by Monday 5 March 2018. We aim to make a decision by March 15.
