COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES Department of Mathematics and Statistics

Dr. Nairanjana Dasgupta

Provost's Featured Faculty Member

Mathematics and Statistics professor Nairanjana Dasgupta was honored as the Provosts' Featured Faculty Member during the November 7, 2015 football game against Arizona State at Martin Stadium.

“It’s the quality of the unexpected that fascinates me about being a teacher at WSU,” Dasgupta says. “It is also a way to be in touch with a younger, more creative generation, who ask, ‘why’ about things I had taken for granted. I have enjoyed every one of them and treasure knowing them and being able to touch their life in some way.”

Dr. Daryll DeWald, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, says Dasgupta is an outstanding representative of the College.

“Dr. Jan Dasgupta is an extraordinary statistics educator and researcher. She is selflessly devoted to leading important WSU statistic initiatives. People describe her as a kind and gracious leader who facilitates teams that strive to work well together.”

As well as being an exemplary educator and researcher, Dr. Dasgupta has been instrumental in the foundation of CISER, the Consortium for Interdisciplinary Statistical Education and Research, at WSU.

Dr. Sandy Cooper, associate chair of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics says, "Dr. Dasgupta is a joy to work with and adds innovation and creativity into everything she does. The department is fortunate to have her as a faculty member."
