Assistant Professor:Dr. Safaa K. Kadhem

Personal Overview

I am assist. Professor of Statistics. My current research interests focus on Bayesian Model selection of the mixture and hidden Markov models. I am also interested in Bayesian methods that are being developed for the model selection approaches. I am now focus on developing model selection criteria under the Bayesian principle.
