    About Chris Busu

    Chris Busu, Ph.D. candidate

    I am Chris Busu and I live in Queens, New York, USA with my family. I have graduated with a Master’s degree in Applied Mathematics from Stony Brook University of NY and I am working towards getting my PhD degree in Statistics. As a Masters student, my concentration was on Advanced Calculus, Linear Algebra, Probability and Statistics. I also took Physics classes. During my PhD years I have focused on Topics on Probability, Time Series Analysis, Multivariate Statistics and Biostatistics. I worked for a couple of years at Brookhaven National Laboratory in a project which analyzed the aerosol particles. In my open time, I enjoy being a tutor for freshman students and I am tutoring online high school and undergraduate students with their math classes.

    Apart from learning and teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, travelling, and playing soccer. I am also a NFL fan.

    I’m available to help students with their assignments and encourage learning via research. I’ll go to the extent of explaining concepts with detailed illustrations and real life examples.

    Allow me to help you with difficulties in your assignments.

    Have a great day every day!
