Resh Mahabir


Department of Mathematics

As a native Detroit, Detroit Public School graduate and Wayne State University graduate, I am extremely passionate about the restoration of the City of Detroit. Community urban development and educational reform through Mathematics and community service has become my focus of my professional and community outreach.

I am a graduate of Wayne State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics and  Master's Degree in Mathematical Statistics.  Currently, I am pursuing a Doctorate in Evaluation and Research, focusing in multivariate regression involving latent variables and their application in educational reform.  



Research interest(s)/area of expertise

My area of interest stem from Categorical Data Analysis, Applied Logistic Regression, Structural equations with Latent Variable and their applications.    Other fields of interest include Nonparametric Data analysis and Predictive models using Monte Carlo Simulations.
