Associate Professor Azizur Rahman

Statistician and Data Scientist

Computing, Mathematics and Engineering


Associate Professor Azizur Rahman is an applied statistician and data scientist with expertise in both developing and applying novel methodologies, models and technologies. Azizur is able to assist in understanding multi-disciplinary research issues within various fields including how to understand the individual activities which occur within very complex behavioural, socio-economic and ecological systems.

He develops "alternative methods in microsimulation modelling technologies" which are very useful tools to socioeconomic policy analysis and evaluation. His 2016 book has contributed significantly to the field of small area estimation and microsimulation modelling. Azizur's research interests encompass issues in simple to multi-facet analyses in various fields ranging from the mathematical sciences to the law and legal studies. He obtained the SOCM Research Excellence Award 2018 and the Charles Sturt RED Achievement Award 2019.
