Li among three students to win Distinguished Paper Award at ENAR


We're excited to congratulate Yujia Li (BIOST '21) for winning a Distinguished Paper Award at the International Biometric Society Spring Meeting on the poster: "Simultaneous Estimation of Number of Clusters and Feature Sparsity in Clustering High-Dimensional Data using Resampling Methods." This year's meeting took place March 24-27 in Philadelphia.

The other two winners were Zhe Sun (BIOST '19) for the paper "BAMM-SC A Bayesian Mixture Model for Clustering Droplet-Based Single Cell Transcriptomic Data from Population Studies" and Tao Sun (BIOST '19) for "Copula-Based Sieve Semiparametric Transformation Model for Bivariate Interval-Censored Data."  

Winners each received a certificate, reimbursement for travel expenses up to $650, tuition waiver for one ENAR short course, and an invitation to the ENAR President's Reception. 

Pitt Public Health also hosted a reception during the conference. For more on Pitt Public Health at ENAR, visit
