While you are there, you might also enjoy episodes 91 and 98 featuring Alicia Carriquiry and episode 21 with ISU Statistics PhD Dennis Lock. 

    The episode with Philip Dixon is titled, "Ecological and Environmental Stats for Earth Day." 

  • Congratulations to Dr. Carlos Llosa-Vite.  His paper "Tensor-variate Elliptically Contoured distributions with Application to Image Learning" was selected for runner-up recognition in the Statistical Methods in Imaging 2022 student paper competition. This paper develops elliptically-contoured distributions that generalize the normal distribution for array-variate data. His approach more accurately predicts images of cats and dogs in the Animal Faces-HQ database, and also better characterizes gender, age and ethnic origin in the Labeled Faces of the Wild dataset.

  • Anna Peterson and Laura Ziegler will present at the 2022 Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education (CAUSE) seminar series. 

    Their presentation titled, "Building a Multiple Linear Regression Model with LEGO Brick Data," will take place on April 19th at 4:00pm. 

  • Zhanrui Cai was hired as a tenure-eligible assistant professor. Cai received his PhD in Statistics from Penn State and is currently a postdoc at Carnegie Mellon University. Cai will join the Department in June.
