Sumona Mondal has been appointed assistant professor of mathematics and computer science at Clarkson University. She will begin teaching this fall.
Mondal received her B.S. and M.S. in statistics from the University of Calcutta, and her M.S. in mathematics and her Ph.D. in statistics from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
Mondal's principal research interest is in the area of constructions of tolerance regions for some multivariate linear models, which is a blend of multivariate data analysis and inferential procedures. The central theme of her research is to develop tolerance factors for multivariate normal distributions and construct tolerance regions for multiple and multivariate linear regression models. She is also involved in the formulation of theoretical problems as well as development of statistical methodologies for problems related to neuroscience.
Mondal has worked on several projects including the improvement of surface water quality in agricultural watershed in Louisiana, biochemical profile of leptin in wildtype and knockout variants, estimation of excitatory post synaptic current in neurons, and the estimation of body fat percentage using a linear regression model. She is already involved in statistical analysis on projects at Clarkson.
Mondal has had an article published in Communications in Statistics - Simulation and Computation, and one accepted and due for publication soon. She is a member of the American Statistical Association, the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and the American Mathematical Society.
Clarkson University, located in Potsdam, New York, is a private, nationally ranked university with a reputation for developing innovative leaders in engineering, business, the sciences, health sciences and the humanities. At Clarkson, 3,000 high-ability students excel in an environment where learning is not only positive, friendly and supportive but spans the boundaries of traditional disciplines and knowledge. Faculty members achieve international recognition for their research and scholarship and connect students to their leadership potential in the marketplace through dynamic, real-world problem solving.
