Dr. Mohammad Hattab obtained his Ph.D. at the University of New Mexico. He also holds a M.Sc. in Mathematics. He is currently working on his second post-doctoral position at CBRPM. His research involves studying the distributions of cell type differences. His first doctoral position concentrated on analyzing high-dimensional climate models and studying uncertainties in global warming experiments. In particular, he developed a set of statistical tools to diagnose model specific structures of differences in climate sensitivity and latitude-longitude maps indicating how various quantities and locations need to be weighted to predict a models response to CO2 forcing using both Frequnetist and Bayesian approaches. His Ph.D. work involves elaborating new statistical tests to assess the adequacy of linear models using Monte-Carlo simulations and/or asymptotic theory. His past work also entails developing statistical models to estimate photo respiration in plants accounting for sources of uncertainty and prior information using Bootstrap and Bayesian modeling. During this time, he was also a statistical consultant, providing his expertise to professors from different academic backgrounds and students alike. His other focuses include: applications of GLMs, process optimization, and uncertainty quantification for skewed data.
