We are happy to report that Allie Fletcher and Jessica Li have both been promoted to Associate Professor. Both promotions are effective July 1, 2019 and come with tenure.
Allie Fletcher’s work is interdisciplinary between applied mathematics, statistics, computer sciences, and electrical engineering. She brings a theoretician perspective to signal processing and high-dimensional inference, especially in sparse recovery and computational neuroscience. She has joint appointments in Mathematics, Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, as well as the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute at University of California, Berkeley.
Jessica Li’s work is on the interface between statistics and biology, especially computational biology. She has joint appointments in Statistics, Biomathematics, and Human Genetics, as well as her role in the new Interdepartmental Ph.D. Program in Bioinformatics.
Both Allie and Jessica are exceptional scientists and show how statisticians are advancing science across the university. They bring statistical ideas to other fields and bring back to our discipline novel ideas that enrich us.
Please join us in congratulating Allie and Jessica!
