Syed Ejaz Ahmed was born in Karachi, a coastal city in the southeast of Pakistan. Pakistan emerged on the map of the world as an independent sovereign state on August 14, 1947, as a result of the division of the British Indian Empire. The land of Pakistan is rich in landscapes and cultural traditions. Historically, this is one of the most ancient lands known to man. Its cities flourished before Babylon was built. Karachi is the capital of the province of Sindh, beside this province there are three other provinces. Karachi is the intellectual and financial capital of Pakistan. Generally or perhaps statistically speaking, Karachiites are most cultured, highly educated and industrious.

Ejaz Ahmed’s parents migrated from India. His father was a civil servant and on the call of the Founder of Pakistan, M. A. Jinah, he opted for Pakistan to help in building the newly born country, like many others. He served in many towns/cities of rural Sindh and finally moved to Karachi in the late fifties. He taught Ejaz languages and rudiments of mathematics at home, and then he was admitted to a school in grade four. After completing inter-science (equivalent to Grade 12), he went on to the University of Karachi and completed an under graduate degree with honors and a Master of Science degree in Statistics. Right after, a major bank appointed him as a bank officer. Later he enrolled in the evening program of the Institute of Business Administration. However, work was not intellectually stimulating and he decided to leave for North America to pursue higher education. Dr. Ahmed received a Master of Science degree from the University of Guelph and a PhD from Carleton University.

Ejaz Ahmed is professor and Dean of Mathematics and Statistics. Before joining Brock, he was a professor and head of Mathematics at the University of Windsor. Prior to that, he had a faculty position at the University of Western Ontario. Further, he is a Senior Advisor to Sigma Analytics (Data Mining & Reserach), Regina. He developed the Master of Science and Doctoral Program in Statistics and produced the first PhD student from this program. He also established the undergraduate co-op program in Statistics and is developing the undergraduate program in Actuarial Science. This program is expected to receive financial support from the public and private sector. This is the first time such a program is being established in Saskatchewan. He founded the under graduate internship program in actuarial science and is is in the process of developing an under graduate combined program in Biology and Statistics.

His area of expertise includes statistical inference, multivariate analysis and asymptotic theory. He has numerous published articles in scientific journals, both collaborative and methodological. Further, he co-edited two volumes and organized many sessions and workshops. He made several invited scholarly presentations in various countries and supervised graduate students both at masters and PhD level. Dr Ahmed serves on the editorial board of many statistical journals. He enjoys teaching statistics to students in all disciplines at various levels and is interested in the development of novel approaches to statistical/actuarial education on-line. He is an elected member of the International Statistical Institute and a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society. He served as a Board of Director and Chairman of the Education Committee of the Statistical Society of Canada.

In 1989, he married Gahazla. They have two children, Jazib and Feryaal. The family has a keen interest in learning the other cultures, faiths and religions of the world. They enjoy traveling by automobile. Recently, they extensively toured various countries in Europe by car. They will be glad to provide travel tips for Far Eastern countries, Europe and North America.
