Welcome to my personal website. My name is Harsimran Somal and I am a university instructor primarily teaching statistics to non-majors. I graduated from the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science at The University of Iowa in Iowa City, IA, USA.

My mathematical interests include computational statistics, Bayesian statistics, and more generally algorithms. The majority of my graduate coursework is in statistics. You can see samples of my writing for university courses on the Downloads page.

Before beginning my studies at The University of Iowa, I was a graduate assistant in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Ball State University in Muncie, IN, USA, where I earned the M.A. degree in Actuarial Science in May 2010. You can see more details of my background on the About Me page. If you have comments or advice regarding statistics, careers, or other topics on my site, please contact me.
