Professor Han Liu were among the 126 researchers from the United States and Canada named as 2017 Sloan Research Fellows. Awarded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the $60,000 fellowships recognize promising early-career scientists who have been nominated by their colleagues. Recipients can use the grants as they wish to further their research.
Professor Fan’s research titled “Machine Learning Methods for Risk Estimation and Portfolio Selection” will focus on developing several statistical machine learning methods for volatility and risk estimation, portfolio selection, and analysis of high frequency financial data.
Professor Han Liu has been awarded the 2015 Teaching Award by the Engineering council for his teaching of ORF 350 "Analysis of Big Data". He is one of five professors who taught in 2015 to be selected for this honor.
Assistant Professor Han Liu received the Howard B. Wentz Jr. Junior Faculty Award from the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS). The award was established to attract and retain the most talented junior faculty members in the School of Engineering and Applied Science. Han will use his Howard B. Wentz award to facilitate his research projects on nonparametric graphical models, nonconvex statistical optimization, and post-regularization inference.
The Institute of Mathematical Statistics has selected Han Liu as the winner of this year’s Tweedie New Researcher Award.
Dr Liu is selected "for making fundamental and outstanding contributions to the theory and methods of nonparametric and semiparametric graphical models, with innovative applications in brain science and genomics.”
The IMS Tweedie New Researcher Award will fund Dr. Liu’s travel to present the Tweedie New Researcher Invited Lecture at the IMS New Researchers’ Conference, held this August in Seattle.
