About Me

Worked in statistical applications to bio-sciences for several decades. Significant improvements of public health (Q.Zhang, M.Safford, J.Ottenweller, G.Hawley, D.Repke, J.F.Burgess, S.K.Dhar et al. 2000). Worked as with the Department of Cell Biology & Molecular Medicine, UMDNJ. Using design of experiment methods, weighted least squares methods and generalized linear models, examples (N.H.Banke, L.Yan, K.M.Pound,

**S.K.Dhar****,**et al.*2012, X.Zhao, D.Ho, P.Abarzúa, S.K.Dhar, et al. 2011, L.Chen, P. Lizano, X. Zhao, X. Sui, S.K. Dhar, et al. 2011) Collaborations with Dr. G.Atlas and others, Department of Anesthesiology at UMDNJ (A.G.Fiol, R.Horvath, C.Schoenberg, N.Ahmed, S.K.Dhar, et al. 2016, G.Atlas, S.K.Dhar, et al. 2014), developing new non-invasive ways to measure patient data using Esophagus Doppler Monitor (G.Atlas, D. Brealey, S.K.Dhar***,**et al. 2012). A lung model statistical analysis (G.Atlas, S.K.Dhar, et al. American Society of Anesthesiology, 2007), and finite recursive models that represent anesthesia within the patient’s system (G.Atlas & S.K.Dhar 2010). Bootstrap based test to establish non-inferiority of drugs in clinical trials (M.Chen, F.Kianifard & S.K.Dhar, 2006) was developed. Multivariate frequency count and reliability models (S.K.Dhar: X.Jiang 2000, 1998, 1996, X.Jiang 1995, 1995, and A.P.Basu 1995) are developed. Wider application using linear, log-linear and logit models via new generalized inverse sampling scheme. Other models of dependent groups of components and their life probability distributions (S.K.Dhar: J.Li 2013, S.Balaji, 2006 & 2003). New discrete bivariate models have been developed with applications to reliability (S.K.Dhar: 1998, and A.P.Basu 1995). Robust and efficient minimum distance estimators (S.K.Dhar:*J. American Statist. Assoc.*1993, 1992, The*Annals of Statist.*1991,*Australian Mathematical Society Journal Series A*, 1990). Specifically, significant optimization tool (S.K. Dhar,*J. American Statist. Assoc.*1993), for the general class of sums of absolute multivariate linear functions, where linear programming methods fail. Research into the existence of minimum distance estimators (S.K.Dhar, D.Chen, 2005). https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/myncbi/sunil.dhar.1/bibliography/public/
