In the final round of elections for 2022, the International Statistical Institute has selected the following IMS members as ISI elected members:
Yifan Cui, Zhejiang University. Dr. Cui is a tenure-track faculty member at the Center for Data Science, Zhejiang University.
Snehalata Vasant Huzurbazar, School of Mathematical and Data Sciences, West Virginia University, USA. Dr. Huzurbazar’s academic career spans Statistics, Biostatistics and now Data Science, both as places of employment as well as research and teaching. She collaborates with researchers across disciplines, and most recently, is learning about problems in space weather and working with aerospace engineers.
Zhenzhen Jin, Department of Biostatistics, Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University, USA. Dr. Jin’s research area covers resampling methods, survival analysis, nonparametric and semiparametric methods, smoothing methods, statistical computing, machine learning and data science. He has been collaborating with clinical investigators in neurology, cardiology, oncology, transplantation, psychiatry, pathology and alternative medicine.
Michael McDermott, University of Rochester Medical Center. Dr. McDermott is Professor of Biostatistics and Neurology and Associate Chair of the Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology at the University of Rochester. For more than 30 years he has been involved in the design and analysis of clinical trials in a variety of neurological diseases, most notably Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, and various muscle diseases. Much of Dr. McDermott’s statistical research has been in the area of order-restricted inference, specifically with regard to developing novel approaches to hypothesis testing problems involving order-constrained parameters. Other interests include inference concerning receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves in the setting of verification bias, meta-analysis, missing data problems, and clinical trials methodology.
Hongjian Zhu, AbbVie Inc, USA. Dr. Zhu is a Director in the Statistical Innovation Group at AbbVie Inc. He has provided strategic, innovative thinking and novel statistical methodology to Therapeutic Areas, including immunology, oncology, eye care, aesthetics, and neuroscience. He was a tenured Associate Professor at UTHealth. His research mainly focuses on adaptive designs.
Yan Zhuang, Connecticut College, USA. Dr. Zhuang is currently an assistant professor at Connecticut College. She conducts research in theory and applications in statistics, including applied probability, sequential analysis, statistical inference, and interdisciplinary research.
