Congratulations to Dr. Jason Maddox who has successfully defended his dissertation “Bayesian Method of Predicting In-Game Win Probability Across Sports” under the direction of Dr. Jane Harvill. Jason is currently a Professor of Sport Analytics at Syracuse University.
Congratulations to Dr. Michael Gallaugher, he was awarded the Helga and Wolfgang Gaul Stiftung Award at the International Federation of Classification Society meeting last week. This award is given biannually to a young researcher with high potential working in the area of Classification, Clustering and related topics.
“The size of Baylor's stats department and the genuine interest that the faculty take in the success of their students were the two main aspects that led me to this program.”
“My favorite classes were computational statistics and the two in the Bayes sequence. The professors I took those with, Dr. Kahle and Dr. Stamey, are two of the best I've had at any level.”
“Everyone made me feel like I could achieve the goal of getting a PhD and that I would have an amazing support system while doing it!”
