Biographical Information
Dr. Srivastav received his masters degree in Statistics from Indian Statistical Institute in 1988 and another masters degree in Applied Mathematics from New Jersey Institute of Technology, New Jersey in 1990. He received his Ph.D. in Design of Experiments from Old Dominion University, Virginia in 1996 and in the same year he took a faculty position at University of California at San Francisco as Assistant Adjunct Professor in Biostatistics. In 1999 he joined the Department of Biostatistics at Tulane's School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. He became an honorary fellow at the Center of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Wisconsin, Madison in summer 2000. Dr. Srivastav will be a research fellow at the Department of Statistics at Stanford University during summer 2001. Dr. Srivastav has published numerous papers in both theoretical and applied statistical and medical journals. His research is focussed on methodology that is devoted toward establishing the optimality and construction of block designs under a different set of parameters (number of treatments, number of blocks and block size, etc). This research will provide a simple classification scheme of study designs that can be useful in the field of health science, agricultural science and industrial engineering.
