Associate Professor of Statistics Sarah Emerson gave a presentation at the Corvallis Women in Data Science (WiDs) satellite event on February 3, 2017, which was organized by the Department of Mathematics. Emerson presented her talk on sparse methods for clustering as part of the Applied and Computational Math Seminar. The presentation was a satellite event of the second annual 2017 WiDs Conference at Stanford University.
WiDs inspires and educates data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and supports women in the field. The conference, hosted at Stanford and more than 75 locations worldwide, including Oregon State, focused on the latest data science related research, applications in multiple domains and how leading-edge companies are using data science for success.
Emerson's research focuses on the areas of clinical trial design, biomarker evaluation and statistical genetics applications, as well as methodological and theoretical work in high-dimensional data settings and statistical learning.
