New Investigator Presentation Award
At the 2018 SSC Annual Meeting the New Investigator Committee debuted the New Investigator Presentation Award for the best contributed talk given by a New Investigator (someone within 5 years of beginning their first academic appointment, and within 10 years of completing their PhD program). Entries were judged on the quality of both the presentation and the underlying research. The award consists of a certificate and a cash prize.
We are happy to announce that the 2018 recipient of the award is Félix Camirand Lemyre for his talk titled "Estimating the Distribution of Episodically Consumed Food Measured with Errors". Congratulations Félix! And an honorable mention goes to Brian Franczak for his talk titled "Cluster Analysis using Mixtures of Asymmetric Distributions".
