In order to enhance professional relationships between academia and industry, the Statistics Department at the University of Georgia holds an annual "UGA Statistics Club Industry Day." This event helps the advancement of cutting edge research in statistics by bringing together a senior researcher from industry and students and faculty from academia. Speakers deliver two presentations: a technical afternoon research lecture (as a part of our regular seminar series) and a less technical after-lunch talk followed by a question-and-answer session with the students.

This Year's Abstract & Speaker:

Dr. Hendrik F. Hamann is currently a Senior Manager and Distinguished Researcher in the Physical Sciences Department at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY. He received his PhD from the University of Göttingen in Germany. During his thesis he developed new spectroscopic techniques to investigate the dynamics and kinetics of transient, short-lived radicals. He was the first one to study the dynamics of radicals under high pressure conditions using saturated laser induced fluorescence spectroscopy.
