On September 28th and 29th  Jeff Wu delivered the 2020-21 Distinguished Lecture Series in Statistical Sciences at the Fields Institute. Wu, Coca-Cola Chair in Engineering Statistics and professor in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, gave the following presentations: “Navier-Stokes, Spatial-Temporal Kriging, and Combustion Stability: A Prominent Example of Physics-Based Analytics,” and “Cmenet: A New Method for Bi-Level Variable Selection of Conditional Main Effects.”

The Fields Institute, located in Ontario, Canada, is a center for mathematical research. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Wu delivered the lectures virtually.

Wu has received numerous prestigious awards for his eminent research in the theory and application of statistics, but 2020 has been a particularly notable year for him. In addition to the Fields Institute lectures, he has also been honored with the Georgia Tech Class of 1934 Distinguished Professor Award – the Institute’s highest faculty honor – and the Sigma Xi Monie A. Ferst Award, which is a national-level award given by the Georgia Tech Sigma Xi chapter.
