Short bio [CV]

Yingying Fan is an Associate Professor in Data Sciences and Operations Department of the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California. She received her Ph.D. in Operations Research and Financial Engineering from Princeton University in 2007. Her research interests include high-dimensional statistics, high-dimensional classification, big data problems, statistical machine learning, nonparametric statistics, business applications, and financial econometrics.

Her papers have been published in journals in statistics, economics, and computer science. She serves as an associate editor of Journal of the American Statistical Association (2014-present), Journal of Econometrics (2015-present), Journal of Multivariate Analysis (2013-present), and the Econometrics Journal (2012-present). She is the recipient of the USC Marshall Inaugural Dr. Douglas Basil Award for Junior Business Faculty (2014), the American Statistical Association Noether Young Scholar Award (2013), NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award (2012), Zumberge Individual Award from USC's James H. Zumberge Faculty Research and Innovation Fund (2010), and USC Marshall Dean's Award for Research Excellence (2010), as well as a Plenary Speaker at the 2011 Institute of Mathematical Statistics Workshop on Finance, Probability, and Statistics held at Columbia University.
