Mevin Hooten, associate professor in the departments of Statistics and Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Biology, has been named a fellow of the American Statistical Association. He received the honor at the 2017 Joint Statistical Meetings held in Baltimore earlier this summer.
Hooten was elected for “innovative research in spatial-temporal modeling and ecological and environmental statistics, and in particular, animal movement modeling; for scientific and statistical assistance in support of natural resource management and conservation; for excellence in mentoring; and for service to the profession.”
Hooten joins CSU Professors Jay Breidt, Jennifer Hoeting and Jean Opsomer as ASA fellows.
The ASA is one of the oldest professional associations in the U.S. and boasts the world’s largest membership of statisticians. Fellows must have an established reputation and have made outstanding contributions to statistical science.
