It's Women's HerStory Month! Join us in celebrating women who are making a difference in graduate education at FSU.

Pengpeng Wang is a PhD candidate in the Florida State University Department of Statistics. "Explore something different and challenge yourself" describes in brief why pursuing a graduate education is important to Pengpeng.

Pengpeng chose FSU to pursue graduate study because of her interest in the research of faculty in the department, FSU provided funding for her PhD study, and of course she likes the warm weather in Florida.

Her research focuses on improving the accuracy of current statistical models by focusing on the correlations between the trend of medical test results and the risk of having a disease. She hopes her research can help people determine a treatment for diagnosed diseases as early as possible.

Pengpeng was recently a 2018 finalist in the Three Minute Thesis competition hosted by Florida State University Graduate School.

Her career goals include pursuing a career as a statistician, helping with drug development in the pharmaceutical industry, and ultimately becoming a clinical study lead and clinical study team manager.
