Congratulations to Runze Li who was recently named the Verne M. Willaman Professor of Statistics at Penn State! Runze is an influential and productive researcher, a great mentor, a supportive and helpful colleague, and a delightful person. We are proud and honored to have him as part of our Center. His recent work has focused on time-varying effect models (TVEMs) and the analysis of high-dimensional data. His work on TVEM is helping answer new questions about relationships over time. His work on high-dimensional data is laying the groundwork for incorporating genetic data into behavioral research.
