Will Fithian 

I am an assistant professor in the Berkeley Statistics Department. I received my PhD in statistics from Stanford in June 2015, advised by Trevor Hastie.

In Fall 2020 I will teach Stat 210A, Theoretical Statistics. If you are an undergraduate who wants to take the course, please fill out the permission code request form to let me know about your background. Please note that due to the pandemic there is more uncertainty than usual in Fall 2020 about how many students we will be able to accommodate.

In addition, Deb Nolan and I run an undergraduate research mentorship program. We are seeking undergraduate researchers and PhD and postdoc mentors for Summer 2020; see more information at the link.

General Office Hours: Non-131A office hours are Monday 1-2; please email me in advance if you plan to come.
