CSDE Affiliate and Associate Professor of Statistics and Sociology Tyler McCormick has been awarded a National Institute of Health (NIH) Director’s New Innovator Award.  This five-year award will support Tyler’s project, Big Data, Big Models, and Big Bias?: A decision making framework for vital rate estimates based on extrapolation.

Part of the High-Risk, High-Reward Research program, the award supports exceptionally creative early career investigators who propose innovative, high-impact projects in the biomedical, behavioral or social sciences within the NIH mission. This is a very special award that recognizes critical and cutting edge work by young scientists.  Congratulations, Tyler!
