By appointment

Abu Manju, PhD, graduated with his first degree in Statistics, then completed an MSc in Statistics at the University of Chittagong, Bangladesh, followed by a PhD in Biostatistics at the University of Maastricht, the Netherlands, in 2016. His doctoral thesis considered the development and application of statistical methods for optimally designing the nested cost-effectiveness randomised clinical trials. In June 2016, Abu started working as a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences (CMS), MSD in Oss, the Netherlands. In this role, he performed statistical research to develop appropriate performance measures, criteria, and experimental designs for the robustness of microbiological methods. He also works as a lecturer at Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences.
