FSU called statistics an associate at the Institute of Mathematical Statistics

Anuj Srivastava is a prominent professor in the Department of Statistics.

A statistician at Florida State University has been named an Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS), one of the most respected appointments in the field.

Anujus Srivastava, a prominent research professor Department of Statistics, was elected in 2022. A member of IMS, joining 39 other researchers from around the world. Srivastava was recognized for his substantial contributions to geometric statistics, including the analysis of forms, the analysis of functional data, and statistics on collectors, and for his leadership and service in this profession.

“I am glad to be part of this selected group of statisticians,” Srivastava said. “My research and experience is interdisciplinary. I publish a lot in the fields of informatics, electrical engineering, applied statistics and image analysis. Although I have never considered myself a mathematical statistician, getting official recognition for this aspect of my work makes me feel good.

Each IMS Fellow is evaluated by a peer committee and must have a record of research or leadership that has made a significant impact in the field. Statistics chairman Xufeng Niu said Srivastava’s impact is significant, calling him a well-known scientist in computer vision, image analysis and statistical modeling.

“He has long been the world’s leading innovator in statistical form analysis, with extensive application of biology, bioinformatics, computational anatomy, and computational vision,” said New. “We are very proud that Anujus has been named an IMS Fellow this year.

1990 Srivastava holds a bachelor’s degree in electronics engineering technology from the Indian Institute of Technology at Banar Hindu University in Varanasi, India. He earned master’s and doctoral degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Washington at St. Louis.

Srivastava has been working at the Statistics Department of FSU since 1997, and in 2014. was recognized as an outstanding research professor. His research is devoted to the quantitative evaluation of object shapes in images and videos.

“I laugh at my group Shapes R Us,” Srivastava said. “We work by analyzing and quantifying the forms of all types of physical and biological objects. For example, we study parts of the human brain to help patients diagnose cognitive disorders such as schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s disease. We examined forms at various scales, from microscopic ones such as chromosomes, mitochondria, and cancer cells, to human scales, including human faces, anatomical structures, and vascular networks as part of a variety of research.

Srivastava said his group helps visualize medium shapes – such as the average 3D human face in a population – or distinguish two populations by their shapes, such as healthy and sick subjects, using their MRI brain scans.

“I am very grateful for my doctorate. students, former and current, and many collaborators who help me expand my knowledge and research prospects, ”Srivastava said. “Interdisciplinary research is teamwork, and any recognition is a team prize. I am glad that our team has been recognized in many ways.

In addition to the IMS Fellowship, Srivastava is also a member of several other associations, including the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Association of Statistics, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and the International Association for Model Recognition.

The Institute of Mathematical Statistics, founded in 1935, is a member of the organization that promotes the development and dissemination of statistics and probability theory and application. IMS has 4,200 active global members. About 10 percent of current IMS members have scholarship status.
