We love languages, but we can work with numbers too. Here is a breakdown of some of our stats.

Across The Pond: Grady Weyenberg

From Hawaii to Arizona, from Arizona to Kentucky, from Kentucky to Bristol, England…fellow statisticians might consider their colleague Grady Weyenberg’s past and future moves a product of what they call random variation, but they are the steps he’s taken toward his career as a statistician.

Congrats to the 2015 Provost's Outstanding Teaching Award Winners

"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge."


New Faculty 2013: Meet Solomon Harrar

The Department of Statistics is excited to welcome Associate Professor Solomon Harrar to its faculty!
 
Harrar isn't entirely new to the state of Kentucky but he is new to the University of Kentucky. One thing that drew him to UK is the large biomedical presence at the university which fits together well with the research he is already pursuing. Most immediately, Harrar hopes to focus his research work around programs that deal with smoking cessation.

New Faculty 2013: Meet Katherine Thompson

The Department of Statistics is excited to welcome Katherine Thompson to its faculty!
 
While Thompson may be a statistician, her focus on developing statistical methods for biological issues also affords her the opportunity to work with other researchers like those in the Department of Biology. These interdisciplinary bridges that exist at UK are just one example of what drew Thompson to the university and it's her hope that the work she does here only strengthens them further.

The Importance of Mentors: Daniel Weiner

Daniel Weiner doesn’t just have one degree from the University of Kentucky but three—the last of which is a Ph.D. in statistics. From UK, Weiner transitioned into a career within the pharmacometrics field where he is now a Senior Vice President at the Certara Corporation offering scientific software and consulting services to the pharmaceutical industry.

Over the years, Weiner has helped create some of the most highly used software in the pharmaceutical world and has co-written a definitive textbook in the field that’s about to enter its fifth edition. In this podcast, Weiner discusses the career that flowed from his time at UK and gives some advice to students trying to find their way today.

UK Center for Drug Abuse Research Translation Receives NIH Grant

The University of Kentucky Center for Drug Abuse Research Translation (CDART) has received a $7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), funding which will continue the center's long history of developing novel intervention strategies that target high-risk individuals.

Great Teachers Make a Great University

Great teachers makes a great college, as well. Three of the honored professors are A&S faculty: Arne Bathke, Eric Christianson, and Ana Rueda.

Applied Statistics Lab Will Foster Collaborative Research, Provide Statistical Support

 

I’d like to point your attention to the newest installment of the Dean’s Channel where I spoke with statistics professors Arne Bathke and Arny Stromberg. In 2011, UK opened its first Applied Statistics Lab (ASL), with the help of the Office of the Vice President for Research, several UK college deans, and infrastructure grants such as the university's recent Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA), UK statisticians in the College of Arts & Sciences' Department of Statistics, and the College of Public Health's Department of Biostatistics.

The main objectives of this venture are to provide improved statistical services to groups preparing grant proposals, direct faculty involvement from the Departments of Statistics and Biostatistics for study design and data analysis throughout UK, foster collaborative research between scholars who develop quantitative methodology and those who use such methodology in their work, and to become a resource which may be referenced in institutional support for larger grants, in addition to direct statistical support typically included in such grants.

Dean's Channel: New Applied Stats Lab Sets the Course for Collaboration

Dean Mark Kornbluh sits down with statistics professors Arne Bathke and Arny Stromberg about the opening of the Applied Statistics Laboratory. This new resource will be available for use by multiple colleges and disciplines to meet statisitical analysis needs for all kinds of research.
