About me

I’m Dhafer Malouche, a Professor of Statistics at the University of Carthage. I teach at the Ecole Supérieure de la Statistique et de l’Analyse de l’Information several data science courses: Big Data, Computing tools for Statistics such as R and Python, Bayesian Statistics and Time Series.

I’m especially interested in Machine Learning, Statistical Modelling and Data Visualization. For my work, I use every day R, Python, H2O and Spark. I will be sharing, in this website, many R and Python codes where I show how you can use these softwares to solve Machine Learning, Statistical Modelling or Data Visualization problems. Your feedback, comments and questions are then very welcome.

You will also find here my CV, links to my papers regarding to several topics and collaborations, slides of my talks and I will be soon publishing my R packages.

So feel free to contact me
