I am thrilled to be named as a University Faculty Scholar. This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of my research team and collaborators. I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues at NCSU and beyond to advance the field of statistical science and make a positive impact on society. The University Faculty Scholars program was established by the NCSU Board of Trustees in 2012. To date, over 100 faculty members have been named as University Faculty Scholars.
