The faculty of the Department of Biostatistics and Informatics has awarded me the 2017 Strother Walker Award based on outstanding work on your dissertation, and your many contributions to computational work being done by your fellow classmates.
Strother H. Walker award. This is given to an outstanding PhD Biostatistics student who has completed the first year and passed the first written Qualifying exam at the PhD level. Preference is given to students who have passed the second written Qualifying exam. It is partially a cash award funded from the interest on a trust set up by Dorothy Walker in honor of Professor Strother Walker, the former chair of the Department of Biometrics.
