Dr. Jeff Wu
, Coca-Cola Chair in Engineering Statistics, is the recipient of the 2005 Jerome Sacks Award for Outstanding Cross-Disciplinary Research sponsored by the National Institute of Statistical Sciences. The award recognizes Wu's innovative work at the interface between statistics and engineering. It was presented at the Joint Statistical Meetings in Minneapolis in August. Wu also won the Jack Youden Prize for his joint paper with Roshan Joseph Vengazhiyil.

"As engineering encounters uncertainty in design, experimentation, and product usage, statistical methods and thinking should play an important, or even central, role in engineering curriculum and practice," said Wu. "Georgia Tech is a leader in this regard."

Wu's research is centered on statistical methodology and applications to engineering and life sciences, and quality and reliability engineering.
