The annual awards program was established in 2006 to recognize alumni under the age of 40 whose achievements positively reflect The Gator Nation. Criteria for the competitive award include making a significant impact on the candidate’s industry and having civic or professional accomplishments at the state, national or international level.
He is an assistant professor in the department of mathematics at Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York. Her main research interest includes adaptive clinical trial designs, multiple testing and statistical modeling. She also collaborates with multiple research entities on investigating Parkinson’s disease and other health-related problems. She has multiple years of experiences in data analysis and statistical consulting.
“The word outstanding barely describes the alumni in this year’s ‘40 Under 40’ class. These young men and women are absolutely remarkable and have already made a significant impact in their professions and communities,” said Matt Hodge, executive director of the UF Alumni Association. “Collectively, they’re a wonderful reflection on The Gator Nation® and its potential to change the world.”
The Outstanding Young Alumni Award recognizes graduates from all UF’s 16 colleges. This year’s honorees range from doctors and pharmacists to entrepreneurs and artists.
