Runze Li Named Fellow of AAAS
November 20, 2017
Congratulations to Methodology Center Investigator Runze Li for being named a 2017 Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). AAS Fellows are recognized for their contributions to science and technology. Runze is one of only seven statisticians recognized by AAAS this year. AAAS is the world’s largest general scientific society and publisher of the journal Science.
Runze’s research focuses on methods for the analysis of intensive longitudinal data and for variable selection and variable screening. His work led directly to the development of our SAS macro for time-varying effect modeling (TVEM), and his current work will enable scientists to identify which genetic, individual, and social factors predict drug abuse, HIV-risk behavior, and related health behaviors.
