Our IA Program develops practical relationships between the department and the industrial community by creating opportunities for scientists, engineers, and developers from high-profile businesses to meet with our graduate students and share research topics in an informal setting. The annual conference for members, faculty, and final-year PhD candidates is a highlight event in our academic year.

Written by Witten

Our (formerly) own Daniela Witten (PhD 2010), now professor and the Dorothy Gilford Endowed Chair of Mathematical Statistics at the University of Washington, has contributed a special brand of advice to doctoral students in the April/May issue of IMS Bulletin:


Ryan Tibshirani (PhD 2011) is the 2022 recipient of the prestigious Mortimer Spiegelman Award. Now professor of statistics at UC Berkeley, Ryan has been recognized by the American Public Health Association (APHA) as an early-career researcher who has made outstanding contributions to statistical methodology and its applications in public health.

Ryan joins a distinctive group of Stanford Statistics alums honored by the APHA, including: Norman Breslow (PhD 1967) in 1980; Rebecca Betensky (PhD 1992) in 2005; John Storey (PhD 2002) in 2015; and Daniela Witten (PhD 2010) in 2019.
