About D. R. Barot

I am currently a Research Fellow at the Department of Statistics, School of Sciences, Gujarat University, and an Asst. Professor of Statistics at H Institute of Commerce, AMSoM, Ahmedabad University. My research interest areas are Reliability and Life Testing, Progressive Censoring and Empirical Bayesian Inferences. My ongoing PhD research work is on ‘Empirical Bayes Estimates of Reliability Performances of some Life Time Models’ under the kind guidance of Dr. M. N. Patel, Professor of Statistics at Department of Statistics, Gujarat University. I have published 12 research papers in refereed international journals.
Since 1999, I have been associated with H. L. Institute of Commerce, AMSoM, Ahmedabad University, where I am currently a head of Statistics Department. I am also a life member of ‘Gujarat Statistical Association’ and ‘Indian Society of Probability and Statistics’.
Academically, while pursuing my postgraduate degree (MSc), Gujarat University awarded “Shri Nanubhai Maneklal Munsha Gold Medal,” “Shrimati Nathiba Hargovandas Laxmichand Gold Medal,” and “Late Prof. Chinubhai Ghelabhai Khatri Memorial Gold Medal” to me for securing first position with distinction in the University examination.
I strongly believe in continual advance of knowledge by reading literatures, identifying gaps and proposing new initiatives to be a lifelong learner. Recently, Ahmedabad University awarded ‘Excellence in research award’ to me for my significant contribution in the research field.
