Olanrewaju Akande
Assistant Professor of the Practice in the Social Science Research Institute

I work on developing statistical methodology for handling missing and faulty data, with particular emphasis on applications that intersect with the social sciences. I am especially motivated to develop methods that can be readily applied by statistical agencies and data analysts. I completed my PhD in statistical science at Duke in 2019, under the supervision of Jerry Reiter. I obtained an MSc in Statistical and Economic modeling from Duke in 2015, and a BSc in Mathematics and Statistics from the University of Lagos, Nigeria in 2010. Prior to coming to Duke, I worked as an analyst at KPMG Professional Services, Nigeria between 2011 and 2012.

Current Research Interests

Bayesian modeling, models for editing erroneous data, multiple imputation, missing data, mixture models, and hierarchical modeling.
