         Methodologies for generating new distributions

         Properties and applications of generalized distributions

         Statistical inferences, parameter estimation, goodness of fit, etc.

B.     Statistical modeling

         Modeling techniques using generalized distributions,

         Predictive modeling for big data,

         Survival and reliability modeling using generalized distributions,

         Techniques of estimation and model selection,

C.    High dimensional data analysis

         Dimension reduction,


         Techniques of modeling high dimensional data.

D.    Bayesian Statistics

         Bayesian priors using generalized distributions,

         Bayesian estimation techniques for generalized distributions,
