Raid Amin is Professor of Statistics, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, at the University of West Florida. He has published 50 peer-reviewed journal articles in a variety of applications, ranging from control chart methodology to shark attack clustering, and also focusing on identifying geographical hotspots for pediatric cancers. He has a passion for statistics education, and he uses modern platforms for delivering lectures to distance students, and to local face-to-face students. He received awards for excellence in teaching and also for excellence in scholarly activities, and he has served on numerous university committees. Recently, he has been bestowed with the title Distinguished University Professor. His excitement of statistics is only matched by his passion for photography and travel.
