Welcome - Let’s Get Statistical!

Hi there! I’m Shamindra Shrotriya, a graduate student in the Department of Statistics and Data Science at the wonderful Carnegie Mellon University. I’ve decided to start blogging to document my learning and development in statistics as a graduate student.

I’d like it to be a fun place to document interesting things I like to read about in the statistics and machine learning space (statistical theory/methodology, research, rstats, python …) as well as anything else I am generally into e.g. books, sports etc.

Feel free to pull up a chair, leave a comment, and join me so that we can explore together.

My CV can be found here.


The credit to starting this blog goes to the following people. I hope to not disappoint and create some useful content here 🖖.


I’d like to thank Salil Shrotriya for taking my profile pic which is the preview image for this post.
