Dr. Niles-Weed is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Data Science at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Center for Data Science at New York University. He was selected by the IMS Committee on Travel Awards: “For driving the development of statistical optimal transport and expanding the boundaries of statistics to problems with a geometric structure by drawing connections with probability, analysis, and computation.”
