Senior Research Scientist Eun Sug Park, a statistician with the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI), has been selected as an American Statistical Association (ASA) Fellow. The prestigious honor is bestowed upon only a fraction of ASA members each year. The selection process begins with a nomination and then approval by an ASA committee.
The ASA was formed in 1839, opened to members around the world in the 1920s, and now boasts a membership of more than 19,000. The goal of ASA is “to promote the practice and profession of statistics.”
Park began her career with TTI in 2001, accumulating numerous awards and recognitions leading modeling and data analysis tasks in many transportation research studies for numerous state and federal agencies. Her expertise includes modeling and analysis of transportation data, safety analysis, Bayesian modeling, uncertainty assessment, high dimensional data analysis, environmental modeling, source apportionment/identification, and assessment of health effects of multiple air pollutants.
“Being selected as an ASA fellow is among the highest honors of my career, and it was all made possible thanks to my TTI colleagues and friends,” says Park, who will be officially recognized at an awards ceremony this summer. “I view this honor as a reflection of my passion for statistics, and especially my work in transportation and environmental science.”
