Georgia Tech’s Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) announced that Professor Xiaoming Huo has been selected by the American Statistical Association (ASA) as a 2017 Fellow. According to the ASA press release announcing this year’s fellows, the fellow designation is bestowed on select ASA members “for their professional contributions, leadership and commitment to the field of statistical science … Consideration is given to such factors as research, teaching, mentoring, occupation, service to the ASA and the broader community, professional activities and accomplishments in other organizations.”
“I am pleased to congratulate Xiaoming on his selection as an ASA Fellow,” said Edwin Romeijn, ISyE’s H. Milton and Carolyn J. Stewart School Chair. “This well-deserved recognition reflects his many significant contributions over the years to both the field of statistical science and the Stewart School.”
