LINCOLN, Neb. — Bertrand Clarke, a professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of Miami, will be the new chair of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Department of Statistics.

Clarke, who also holds appointments in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health and in the Center for Computational Sciences at the University of Miami, will take over Aug. 1.

Clarke also has held faculty appointments at Purdue University and the University of British Columbia.

In addition to heading the statistics department, Clarke will help lead the UNL initiative to grow and strengthen teaching and research across the computational sciences.

The statistics department is jointly administered through the College of Arts and Sciences and the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

“The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is uniquely positioned, with a wide range of research programs generating large, novel data across the agricultural, life and material sciences, to push the forefront of new discovery and development in computational sciences, and the statistics department is key to that success,” said Archie Clutter, dean of UNL’s Agricultural Research Division.
