Although the 2020 WNAR meeting was cancelled due to COVID-19, WNAR was committed to support student researchers and transitioned to a virtual Student Paper Competition.

  • Twenty-four students participated in the virtual student paper competition. 

    The winners in the written category were: 

  •      Lingjing Jiang, University of California San Diego: “Assessing Reproducibility of Selected Features with Big Data"
  •      Kwangho Kim, Carnegie Mellon University: “Causal Clustering” 
  • The winner of the oral category was:

  •      Jinyuan Liu, University of California San Diego: “Regression Models for within-subjects Responses with between-subject Explanatory Variables: Applications to Microbiome Data”

The students received their award at a virtual meeting. 

We give a special thanks to the chair of the student paper competition, Harold Bae from Oregon State University and the other Student Competition judges: Jay Barber (Northern Arizona University), Fang Chen (SAS), Charlotte Gard (New Mexico State University), Tusharkanti Ghosh (University of Colorado), Jessica Minnier (Oregon Health & Sciences University), Camille Moore (National Jewish Hospital), Debmalya Nandy (University of Colorado), and Laura Saba (University of Colorado).
