Dr. Purnamrita Sarkar Joins SDS

Sarkar P28 August 2014—We are pleased to welcome Dr. Purnamrita Sarkar to the Department of Statistics and Data Sciences as an Assistant Professor this fall. She comes to us from the University of California, Berkeley, where she worked as a postdoctoral researcher under Drs. Peter J. Bickel and Michael Jordan in the Department of Statistics and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences. Purna earned her PhD in Machine Learning from the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.

Purna is thrilled to be one of the first two full time faculty members in the new Statistics department. She feels that the university is seeing a lot of research activity in the area of Statistics and Data Sciences; in addition to the department itself, there is exciting research on large scale statistical estimation going on in Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, the business school, biology and so on. She is excited to be part of such an active and diverse collaborative environment.
