Prof. Dr. Yap Bee Wah

Professor Dr. Yap Bee Wah graduated with a BSc (Hons) (Mathematics Education) from University Sains Malaysia. She then obtained her Masters of Statistics degree from University of California, Riverside, USA and her PhD(Statistics) from University of Malaya. She recently joined UniTAR International University in 2021 and besides teaching, will spearhead the university research and consultancy unit.

Professor Dr. Yap Bee Wah was formerly a faculty member of the Center of Statistical and Decision Science Studies in Faculty of Computer and Mathematical Sciences (FSKM), Universiti Teknologi MARA. Her research interests are in Big Data Analytics, computational statistics and multivariate data analysis. Her research works are in healthcare, environment and business analytics She was the Head of Advanced Analytics Engineering Centre (AAEC), a Research Interest Group in Faculty of Computer and Mathematical Sciences (2016 – 2020). In February 2021, AAEC became a Centre of Excellence of UiTM with the name Institute of Big Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence (IBDAAI). She is now the Principal Fellow of IBDAAI, UiTM. She is supervising five PhD students. She is an active researcher and has published papers in ISI journals such as Expert Systems with Applications Journal of Statistical Computation and Simulation, Communications in Statistics-Computation and Simulation and Journal of Clinical and Translational Endocrinology, and also in Scopus indexed journals. She is the Conference Chair of International Conference on Soft Computing in Data Science (2015-2019 & 2021). She is also one of the Editors of the SCDS conference proceedings published in Springer CCIS series and guest editor of Applied Soft Computing (Q1) journal.

She believes that education is a life-long journey and “Passion is the catalyst for perseverance and achievements”.
