Georgia Tech’s H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) announced that Yajun Mei has been promoted to professor, effective August 15, 2020.

“Yajun’s hard work has led to numerous contributions to the fields of mathematical statistics and biostatistics,” said ISyE School Chair Edwin Romeijn. “I congratulate him on this well-deserved promotion.”

Mei's research interests in statistics include change-point problems and sequential analysis in mathematical statistics; longitudinal data analysis, random effects models, and clinical trials in biostatistics; and sensor networks and information theory in engineering.

He received a CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation in 2010; the Abraham Wald Prize in Sequential Analysis in 2009; and the FUSION Best Paper Award (co-authored with Cheng-Der Fuh) in 2008.

Mei earned a B.S. in mathematics from Peking University in P.R. China, and a Ph.D. in mathematics with a minor in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology. He completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in biostatistics at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington.
