Congratulations to Rebecca Barter and Shamindra Shrotriya for winning the Geisinger Health Collider Project! From the article:
The Sutardja Center is pleased to announce that Team Outliers (Rebecca Barter and Shamindra Shrotriya) have won the Geisinger Health Collider. Team Outliers competed against four other teams: three teams from Goethe University in Germany and one from Stanford. Rebecca is a PhD student in the Department of Statistics at UC Berkeley (advised by Professor Bin Yu and Professor Jasjeet Sekhon), and Shamindra is an MA student also in the Department of Statistics. For their project, Team Outliers focused on an analysis of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and its association with environmental factors.
