CANSSI Ontario will host the prestigious Distinguished Lecture Series in Statistical Science (DLSS). The lecture consists of one general lecture and one more specialized lecture by an internationally prominent statistical scientist. A nominating committee solicits nominations from the Canadian statistical community and makes a recommendation to CANSSI National Panel, which is responsible for the selection of speakers. This year's speaker is Professor Xihong Lin.
Xihong Lin is a Professor of Biostatistics and Coordinating Director of the Program in Quantitative Genomics of Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and Professor of Statistics at Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Lin's research interests lie in development and application of statistical and computational methods for analysis of high-throughput genetic and genomic data in epidemiological, environmental and clinical studies, for analysis of complex exposure and phenotype data in observational studies, and statistical learning and inference methods for massive data.
