On September 12th, 2016, Prof. Shujie Ma from California University visited the Center and gave a talk Wild bootstrap confidence intervals in sparse high dimensional heteroscedastic linear models.


The Center for Statistical Science hosted a “Summer Camp for Outstanding Undergraduates”, July 13-16, 2016, to provide for top undergraduate students keen on furthering their study of Statistics and Data Science a venue for broadening their academic perspectives, and learning of the state-of-the-art in research.



During the 3 days of activities, students interacted in depth with world renowned statisticians and industrial elite, both domestic and overseas, and learned of the latest in Statistics and Data Science research, industrial applications, and vision of future development. A the conclusion of the Camp activities, 8 participants were awarded “Excellent Summer Camp Participant Prize”, locked in early for the Center’s “Exam free admission to Ph.D. program” 2017 quota.
