New Faculty 2013: Meet Solomon Harrar

The Department of Statistics is excited to welcome Associate Professor Solomon Harrar to its faculty!
 
Harrar isn't entirely new to the state of Kentucky but he is new to the University of Kentucky. One thing that drew him to UK is the large biomedical presence at the university which fits together well with the research he is already pursuing. Most immediately, Harrar hopes to focus his research work around programs that deal with smoking cessation.

New Faculty 2013: Meet Katherine Thompson

The Department of Statistics is excited to welcome Katherine Thompson to its faculty!
 
While Thompson may be a statistician, her focus on developing statistical methods for biological issues also affords her the opportunity to work with other researchers like those in the Department of Biology. These interdisciplinary bridges that exist at UK are just one example of what drew Thompson to the university and it's her hope that the work she does here only strengthens them further.

Expanding Horizons with Social Theory: Lisa Cliggett

Though A&S has a variety of departments and programs, the most interdisciplinary group may be the the Committee on Social Theory. A diverse group of faculty, it has been a part UK since 1989. With the former director on sabbatical (Marion Rust from English), Anthropologist Lisa Cliggett will serve as the interim director. In this podcast, Cliggett talks about her involvement with social theory, what kinds of courses and events the Committee brings to UK, and how social theory informs her own research.
