We would like to welcome Mayya Zhilova, who joined the School of Mathematics at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Fall 2016. Mayya's primary research interests lie in the areas of mathematical statistics and probability theory, particularly in statistical inference for complex high-dimensional data. Her current research is focused on probabilistic and statistical properties of resampling procedures for high-dimensional data in presence of modelling errors in statistical models
Mayya Zhilova received her Ph.D. from Humboldt University of Berlin in 2015. Before joining Georgia Tech, she worked at Weierstrass Institute in Berlin, in the research group Stochastic Algorithms and Nonparametric Statistics from 2011 till 2016. She did her undergraduate studies in Lomonosov Moscow State University. In her leisure time, Mayya enjoys listening to music, dancing, and hiking. For more details see her website.
