Dr. Susmita Datta, Professor in the Department of Biostatistics, was recently selected to serve on the National Science Foundation’s Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences Regional Conference Series. Her term is for five years and will begin immediately. These conference series consist of five-day conferences each of which features a distinguished lecturer delivering ten lectures on a topic of important current research in one sharply focused area of the mathematical sciences. Board members will suggest speakers, suggest possible venues, help in refining proposals and provide feedback on the major changes to the program solicitation for the conference series.
Congratulations, Dr. Datta!
