In September 1998, I had obtained an Assistant professor position at the University of Sousse in Tunisia. During the 2002-2003 academic year, I was a visiting professor at York University in Toronto. In 2003, I returned to Tunisia and served as Assistant Professor at the new Engineering School of Statistics in Tunisia (http://www.essai.rnu.tn/) and he became an Associate Professor in 2011. I’m teaching several courses on Data Analysis (Bayesian Statistics, Data Mining…). I’m also supervising numerous projects and doctorates about real cases across various topics and developed many collaborative, multidisciplinary research programs. In 2011, I was a former Fulbright Scholar at the Department of Statistics at Stanford University. Since 2012, I worked with political science scholars on the democratic transition in Tunisia. I had implemented three national surveys in Tunisia about the political transition and local governance (November 2012, Juin 2014 and March 2015). In 2014-2015, I had worked in the Governance Local Development Program of the Gothenburg University. He was invited to join the MacMillan Center at Yale as a visiting professor. In 2016-2017, I was also a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at the Center for Political Studies of the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan.

Due to all of these years working and teaching various topics related to Statistics and
Data mining, I have accomplished very interesting experiences on how to coordinate
between different statistical activities. I have also built several kinds of databases from
many sources. This task is important to understand in order to match together different
results. I am also very familiar with different statistical tools, especially with R and
RStudio. Currently, these tools are considered as the most useful statistical tools to
perform different types of statistical modeling. During these last ten years, I have also
worked with multidisciplinary teams through working on a variety of topics. I have
worked closely with political scientists, epidemiologists and social scientists. In each
experience I was willing to learn from others; place team agendas before my personal
agenda; support and act in accordance with the final group decision, even when such
decisions may not have entirely reflected my own position; and share credit for team
accomplishments and accept joint responsibility for team shortcomings
