Biography & Expertise

Dr. Oral completed her PhD at the Hacettepe University under the supervision of Dr. Moti L. Tiku. She completed her post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Washington, in the Departments of Biostatistics and Epidemiology between August 2004 – February 2006. During that period, she was also affiliated with both the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the Group Health Research Institute (now Kaiser Permanente Washington Research Institute) in Seattle. She joined LSUHSC, School of Public Health in August 2008. Her research involves robust statistical inference, generalized linear models, survey sampling and statistical inference with censored, skewed or heavy tailed distributions. Her current research specifically focuses on proposing robust estimators in generalized linear models and in survey sampling, along with proposing novel estimators which utilize randomized response techniques. She also does research on the effects of unit nonresponse and attrition in health related studies. She served as an officer of the American Statistical Association-Louisiana Chapter between 2012-2018.
