Dr. Himel Mallick, assistant professor of population health sciences, has been elected to the 2023 class of fellows of the American Statistical Association (ASA). This prestigious distinction recognizes statisticians for their professional contributions, leadership, and commitment to the field of statistical science.
The designation of ASA Fellow has been a significant honor for nearly 100 years. Under ASA bylaws, the Committee on Fellows can elect up to one-third of one percent of the total association membership as fellows each year. Dr. Mallick was selected for his notable contributions to the field of microbiome and multi-omics data analysis as well as his prolific service to the profession, extensive mentorship activities, and exemplary leadership in interdisciplinary collaboration.
The awards ceremony will take place at the ASA Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM) in Ontario, Canada during August 5-10, 2023.
Dr. Mallick was also recently awarded the 2022 Indian International Statistical Association (IISA) Early Career Award in Statistics and Data Science (ECASDS) in the Professional Practice Category. This prestigious award celebrates early-career scientists who have made outstanding contributions to the field of statistics and data sciences.
“Receiving these prestigious awards has been a huge encouragement for me at an early stage of my career,” Dr. Mallick said. “This is a testament to the endless efforts of applied statisticians who are actively engaged in shaping the future of drug discovery and population health. I hope this serves as a source of inspiration for future aspirants.'
