|BSPH student awarded NSF fellowship for graduate study in biostatistics|
Rebecca Rothwell was awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship for graduate study in biostatistics. The award provides support for three years of graduate study in addition to an annual stipend. The NSF program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based graduate degrees.
Rothwell will graduate from the Department of Biostatistics in May 2011 with a BSPH in biostatistics and a BA in mathematics. Her senior honors thesis, "New Insights on Heat Pain Temporal Summation- Results from the OPPERA study," under the direction of Dr. Eric Bair, also was awarded an honorable mention at the Undergraduate Statistics Project Competition (USPROC) sponsored by the Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education (CAUSE). The purpose of USPROC is to encourage the development of data analysis skills, to enhance presentation skills, and to recognize outstanding work by undergraduate statistics students. Rothwell plans to pursue a doctoral degree in biostatistics.
