Runze Li.
Runze Li, Holder of the Eberly Family Chair in Statistics, was selected for “distinguished contributions to the eld of statistics, particularly in high-dimensional data analysis, and for an outstanding record on teaching, mentoring, and professional service.” Li’s research involves several fields of statistics, including high-dimensional data analysis, variable selection, and longitudinal data analysis. Li also studies various statistical applications such as design and modeling for behavioral science, computer experiments, genetic-data analysis, and brain-image analysis.
