Two Statistics Ph.D. Students, Chris Galbraith and Michelle Nuno, received honorable mentions in the recent National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP) Competition. Chris Galbraith’s proposal was “Modeling Individual-Level Event Data via Semi-Parametric Mixture/s” and Michelle Nuno’s proposal was “Statistical Analysis of Multivariate Traits with Repeated Measurements.”
This year, a diverse group of 2,000 individuals were chosen from an applicant pool of almost 17,000 to receive awards from the NSF GRFP. “The Graduate Research Fellowship Program is a vital part of our efforts to foster and promote excellence in U.S. science, technology, engineering and mathematics by recognizing talent broadly from across the nation,” said Joan Ferrini-Mundy, NSF assistant director for Education and Human Resources, in a press release. “These awards are provided to individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant research achievements, and they are investments that will help propel this country’s future innovations and economic growth.”
