I completed my undergraduate in Statistics at Addis Ababa University, Honours in Statistics and MSc in Statistics (with Distinction) at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Currently I am a PhD Candidate at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. During my Master’s Program I have published one Paper (Yirga, A.A., Ayele, D.G. and Melesse, S.F., Application of Quantile Regression: Modelling Body Mass Index in Ethiopia, The Open Public Health Journal (2018) 11:221-233, https://benthamopen.com/FULLTEXT/TOPHJ-11-221) and second one have been accepted (Yirga, A.A., Mwambi, H.G, Ayele, D.G. and Melesse, S.F., 2018, Factors affecting child malnutrition in Ethiopia based on an ordinal response regression model, African Health Sciences Journal, 18.). This year my third paper is under review (Ashenafi Yirga, Sileshi Melesse, Dawit Ayele, Henry Mwambi, 2019, The use of complex survey design models to identify determinants of malnutrition in Ethiopia). My PhD’s project is focused on researching the acute HIV infection study. I would like to continue my career in the field of Biostatistics and Public health.
