Dawn Woodard

Assistant Professor
Operations Research and Information Engineering (ORIE)

Dawn Woodard received her B.S. from Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA, in 2001 and her Ph.D. in statistics from Duke University, Durham, NC, in 2007. She joined Cornell University in 2008, where she is currently an Assistant Professor of Operations Research and Information Engineering. The focus of her research is on Bayesian statistics, both methodology and applications, and on the convergence rates of Markov chain methods. She has authored or coauthored 10 refereed publications and 6 submitted publications in statistics, applied probability, and computer systems journals, peer-reviewed conferences, and books.
