Lotspeich receives David P. Byar Early Career Award
#JSM2023 is underway in Toronto, and one of this year’s highlights will be Vanderbilt graduate Sarah Lotspeich (PhD 2021) delivering “Optimal Multi-Wave Validation of Secondary Use Data with Outcome and Exposure Misclassification.” It has been designated the best biometrics paper by an early career investigator (definite as an individual who is currently a student or earned their doctorate less than three years ago). The Byar Award is a prestigious $2,000 prize sponsored by the Biometrics Section of the American Statistical Association. Lotspeich, winner of Vanderbilt’s W.S. Gosset Award for Exceptional Research in 2020, is now an assistant professor of statistical sciences at Wake Forest University.
