created 14  Feb  2009


Jiashun JinThe Institute of Mathematical Statistics has selected Jiashun Jin as the winner of this year's Tweedie New Researcher Award. Dr Jin received his PhD in 2003 from Stanford University, and is currently an Associate Professor at Carnegie Mellon University.

The IMS Travel Awards Committee, selected Dr. Jin for "fundamental theoretical advances in understanding 'Needle-in-a-Haystack' problems, where among many Z-scores or P-values, only a few can be expected to be truly significant. He developed practical False Discovery Rate controlling Procedures and Higher Criticism procedures for use in such problems. He made applications to Cosmological data analysis, Genomics and Network traffic analysis."

The IMS Tweedie New Researcher Award will fund Dr. Jin's travel to present the Tweedie New Researcher Invited Lecture at the IMS New Researchers' Conference , held this year in Baltimore, Maryland, from July 28 to 31, 2009.
