Current CV


I studied at Clarion University from 2011-2014, earning a B.S. in Mathematics. After this, I completed a M.A. in Mathematics at Brandeis University in 2016 under the advisement of Dr. Olivier Bernardi. Currently I am a PhD student in the Department of Statistics at Penn State University, advised by Dr. Aleksandra Slavkovic and Dr. Matthew Reimherr.

Research Interests

My research focuses on differential privacy, with applications to functional data analysis, classical statistical inference, and empirical risk minimization. I also have collaborated with my father Dr. Shaheen Awan, Professor of Speech Pathology at Bloomsburg University, in problems of pitch tracking for the analysis of physiological signals.
