The Statistics Seminar speaker for Wednesday, November 15, 2017, will be Ines Wilms, Jacob Wolfowitz Visiting Assistant Professor within Cornell's Department of Statistics. Wilms received her PhD in Business Statistics at KU Leuven (2016). Her research focuses on developing statistical methods for analyzing modern, high-dimensional data sets, with a particular focus to time series data sets. The application of the proposed methodologies to a variety of business domains (including marketing, finance and macro-economics) forms an essential part of her research. This has led to several publications in journals such as the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, International Journal of Forecasting, or European Journal of Operational Research.
