Journal Article
Azeem, M., Kiani, K., Mansouri, T., & Topping, N. (2023). SkinLesNet: Classification of Skin Lesions and Detection of Melanoma Cancer Using a Novel Multi-Layer Deep Convolutional Neural Network. Cancers, 16(1), 108. https://doi.org/10.3390/cancers16010108

Skin cancer is a widespread disease that typically develops on the skin due to frequent exposure to sunlight. Although cancer can appear on any part of the human body, skin cancer accounts for a significant proportion of all new cancer diagnoses worl...

Survival model with doubly interval-censored data and time-dependent covariates (2018)
Book Chapter
Kiani, K., & Arasan, J. (2018). Survival model with doubly interval-censored data and time-dependent covariates. In Lecture Notes in Engineering and Computer Science. Newswood Limited

In this paper a survival model with doubly interval censored (DIC) data and time dependent covariate is discussed. DIC data usually arise in follow-up studies where the lifetime, T = W − V is the elapsed time between two related events, the first eve...

Mean and cell-mean imputation resulting in the use of a semicontinuous distribution and a mixture of semicontinuous distributions (2017)
Journal Article
Aliakbari Saba, R., Rezaei Ghahroodi, Z., Kiani, K., & Berridge, D. M. (in press). Mean and cell-mean imputation resulting in the use of a semicontinuous distribution and a mixture of semicontinuous distributions. Communications in Statistics - Theory and Methods, 46(23), 11450-11465. https://doi.org/10.1080/03610926.2016.1267762

Zero-inflated models are commonly used for modeling count and continuous data with extra zeros. Inflations at one point or two points apart from zero for modeling continuous data have been discussed less than that of zero inflation. In this article,...

Interval estimations for parameters of Gompertz model with time-dependent covariate and right censored data (2012)
Journal Article
Kiani, K., Arasan, J., & Midi, H. (2012). Interval estimations for parameters of Gompertz model with time-dependent covariate and right censored data. Sains malaysiana, 41(4), 471-480

There are numerous parametric models for analyzing survival data such as exponential, Weibull, log-normal and gamma. One of such models is the Gompertz model which is widely used in biology and demography. Most of these models are extended to new for...

Gompertz model with time-dependent covariate in the presence of interval-, right- and left-censored data (2012)
Journal Article
Kiani, K., & Arasan, J. (2013). Gompertz model with time-dependent covariate in the presence of interval-, right- and left-censored data. Journal of Statistical Computation and Simulation, 83(8), 1472-1490. https://doi.org/10.1080/00949655.2012.662979

In this paper, the Gompertz model is extended to incorporate time-dependent covariates in the presence of interval-, right-, left-censored and uncensored data. Then, its performance at different sample sizes, study periods and attendance probabilitie...

Simulation of interval censored data in medical and biological studies (2012)
Journal Article
Kiani, K., & Arasan, J. (2012). Simulation of interval censored data in medical and biological studies. International Journal of Modern Physics: Conference Series, 09, 112-118. https://doi.org/10.1142/S2010194512005168

This research looks at the simulation of interval censored data when the survivor function of the survival time is known and attendance probability of the subjects for follow-ups can take any number between 0 to 1. Interval censored data often arise... Read More about Simulation of interval censored data in medical and biological studies.
