Research Interests
Yousaf Shad Muhammad currently working as a chairman, department of Statistics (biggest department in Pakistan), Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad. He is a skilled statistician with a strong background in optimization methods. Since 2004 he has been developing and implementing different mathematical programming models. At University of Vienna (2004-2007), Yousaf has a deep knowledge in mathematical programming and has developed new model for Indus basin irrigation
system (IBIS). At NTNU and SINTEF (2008-2010), he is developed and
implemented Seafood Value Chain Stochastic Optimization Model for Norwegian meat market. Yousaf attended Portfolio Financial Optimization (PFO) workshops in Verbund, Vienna. I conducted risk assessment (credit risk) model for House Building Finance Cooperation Pakistan in 2011. I and my team conducted many computational risk management, credit risk management and portfolio optimization workshops in National University of Science and Technology (NUST), State Bank of Pakistan and commercial banks in Pakistan. • Stochastic Modeling: Modeling any kind of real world system in the presence of stochastic behavior of some parameters.
