A warm welcome to another new faculty member!
Our department is delighted to announce the addition of yet another brilliant colleague to our faculty. We look forward to working with Vianey, starting this July, and warmly welcome her to our team. Additional hiring news will be reported in the next issue of Liaison.
Vianey Leos Barajas will be joining the Department of Statistical Sciences and The School of the Environment as an assistant professor in July 2020. Vianey primarily works in the area of statistical ecology. She has had the opportunity to collaborate with researchers all over the world analyzing data in fascinating areas such as shark movements and snake tracking. Most recently, she began working in environmental statistics, with a focus on spatial modelling of disease data. Vianey looks forward to pursuing collaborative projects with researchers from both departments at the University of Toronto and creating an ecological and environmental statistics group.
