Math Professor Inducted As Fellow of Institute of Mathematical Statistics

Mathematics Professor Marianna Pensky, Ph.D., was recently inducted as a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics.

The IMS fosters development and innovation in the field of statistical sciences. Annually, a number of individuals from the 3,500 members worldwide are nominated and inducted as fellows to recognize their contribution to the scientific community.

“My life’s work is statistics,” said Pensky. “The field is quickly developing and it’s very exciting. It’s dynamic and there are many applications to be found throughout, ranging from computer science to biological statistics.”

Pensky focuses primarily on high-dimensional statistics. During her time at UCF, Pensky has studied computer vision, statistical genetics and population biology and reliability.

“This is a very pleasant recognition for me,” said Pensky. “I came to UCF over twenty-five years ago, and getting this job and being in my position is still the biggest highlight of my entire career.”
