We are also excited to have three new faculty members joining us in the Fall of 2020, including our first two faculty appointed specifically for Data Science.


Assistant Professor of Data Science

Osei Tweneboah

Osei Tweneboah

Osei Tweneboah is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Computational Science Program at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and will be joining Ramapo this coming Fall – where he will be teaching courses in Python and Applied Statistics.

Osei’s research interests include data science and stochastic analysis with applications to big data analytics and complex data sets arising in finance, health care, geophysics etc. Osei has co-authored fourteen (14) peer reviewed papers in the areas of statistics and data science, applied mathematics and computational science. His most recent work involves applying mathematical modeling processes originally applied to financial data to predicting natural phenomenon – such as earthquakes.

Assistant Professor of Data Science

Debbie Yuster

Dr. Yuster holds a B.A. in Mathematics with a concentration in Computer Science from Cornell, and a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Columbia, specializing in the field of Combinatorics.

Dr. Yuster joins us from SUNY Maritime College, where she has been a math professor for over a decade, earning accolades such as the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching. Dr. Yuster served as a Visiting Data Science Scholar at the Wall Street Journal, and has cultivated industry partnerships leading to student research projects. She has authored peer-reviewed journal publications in mathematics, and has given numerous invited lectures. Dr. Yuster is also interested in K-12 STEM outreach, having worked with secondary school math teachers and students for many years. As part of Ramapo’s Data Science program, Dr. Yuster will teach courses in Data Science, Mathematics, and Computer Science.

Assistant Professor of Mathematics

Matthew Jobrack

Matthew Jobrack holds a B.S. in mathematics from Longwood University with a concentration in secondary education, a M.A. in mathematics from Appalachian State University, and a M.S in Statistics from Washington State University. He is currently a doctoral candidate in mathematics at Washington State University specializing in analytic number theory, with additional research interests in statistical wildlife population models. He has coauthored peer-reviewed publications in both mathematics and math education. He currently lives with his wife, daughter, 2 cats and 1 dog.
