Kimberly F. Sellers, Ph.D. is a Professor of Mathematics and Statistics, specializing in Statistics at Georgetown University in Washington, DC; and a Principal Researcher with the Center for Statistical Research and Methodology Division of the U.S. Census Bureau. Prof. Sellers completed her BS and MA degrees in Mathematics at the University of Maryland College Park, and then obtained her PhD in Mathematical Statistics at The George Washington University. Her research areas of interest and expertise are in generalized statistical methods involving count data that contain data dispersion; and in image analysis techniques, particularly low-level analyses including preprocessing, normalization, feature detection, and alignment. Prof. Sellers held previous faculty positions at Carnegie Mellon University as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Statistics, and the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine as an Assistant Professor of Biostatistics and Senior Scholar at the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics before her return to the DC area. Sellers is an Elected Member of the International Statistical Institute, and an American Statistical Association (ASA) Fellow. Meanwhile, she is an active contributor to efforts to diversify the fields of mathematical and statistical sciences, both with respect to gender and race/ethnicity. She is the inaugural chairperson of the ASA’s Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) Outreach Group (serving in 2021-2022), and is a former Chairperson for the ASA’s Committee on Women in Statistics.

Dr. Jianjun Shi is the Carolyn J. Stewart Chair and Professor in the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, with a joint appointment in the School of Mechanical Engineering, both at Georgia Institute of Technology. He received his B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Beijing Institute of Technology in 1984 and 1987, and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan in 1992.
Dr. Shi’s research focuses on data enabled manufacturing, and system informatics and control. His methodologies integrate system informatics, advanced statistics, and control theory, and fuse engineering system models with data science methods for design and operational improvements of manufacturing systems. The technologies developed by Dr. Shi’s research group have been implemented in a wide variety of production systems and produced significant economic impacts.
Dr. Shi is a member of National of Academy of Engineering (NAE) of the USA, an Academician of the International Academy for Quality (IAQ), a Fellow of five professional societies, including ASME, IISE, INFORMS, ISI, and SME.

Professor Richard O. Sinnott is Professor of Applied Computing Systems at the University of Melbourne. He has been technical lead on a multitude of large-scale international projects with emphasis on big data and security worth over $500m. This includes numerous projects in the defence, intelligence and biomedical domains. He has over 450 peer-reviewed publications across a range of computing and application-specific domains.
