Congratulations to two of our doctoral students in Stats – Grace Deng and Binh Tang. These two were part of the winning team at the recent Cornell Datathon, hosted by Citadel last month on the Cornell campus. The team won $20,000.
The team's datathon project analyzed economic/employment datasets and utilized data visualizations, feature engineering, hypothesis testing, and non-parametric statistical modeling.
Joining Grace and Binh on the winning team were Alex W. (Computer Science), and Sander A. (Operations Research and Information Engineering).
