Evan Sidrow Awarded CANSSI Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Canadian Statistical Sciences Institute (CANSSI) has named Evan Sidrow as a Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow for 2024-2026. Evan completed a master’s degree at the University of Colorado and spent two years as a data scientist at Seagate Technology before beginning his Ph.D. studies at the UBC Department of Statistics under Nancy Heckman and Marie Auger-Méthé. His research focuses on stochastic processes for ecological biologging data.

As a CANSSI Distinguished postdoc, Evan will focus on the "Fine-scale and Functional Mapping of Brain Imaging Genetics and Aging," working with large-scale datasets like the UK Biobank and the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging. Under the guidance of Professors Lloyd Elliott (Simon Fraser University) and Junling Ma (University of Victoria), he aims to develop new statistical methodologies for health research, particularly in brain imaging and genetics.
