Branko Pecar

Statistics Consultant

Branko spent most of his career working for Emerson, a global and one of the largest process control equipment manufacturing corporations. His last position was VP Educational Services. In the past, he also lectured at the University of Gloucestershire in several subjects, including quantitative methods and applications of Excel.

He published a series of books in statistics with a variety of publishers, such as McGraw Hill, Oxford University Press and Amazon. Almost all of these books are based around applying a variety of sophisticated methods using the simplest Excel syntax. He has been using Excel for over thirty years and has experience in applying it to numerous and diverse problems.

At present, Branko is working on algorithms for a Norwegian start-up, applying Fast Fourier Transforms to problems related to process safety valves. Currently, he uses Excel extensively as a modelling tool to validate some of the process assumptions required to optimize the algorithms.
