Xin (Henry) Zhang is an Associate Professor in Statistics at the Florida State University. He received his B.S. degree in Applied Physics from University of Science and Technology of China, and his Ph.D. degree in Statistics from University of Minnesota. In May 2014, Henry finished his Ph.D. thesis, titled ‘‘Envelopes for efficient multivariate parameter estimation’’, advised by Professor R. Dennis Cook.

His current research interests include tensor data analysis, multivariate statistics, computational statistics, neuroimaging, dimension reduction and envelopes, whose goal is to increase efficiency in multivariate parameter estimation and prediction.

He has developed and taught two PhD-level research topic courses: ‘‘Envelope and Subspace Learning’’ (Fall 2018) and ‘‘Tensor Data Analysis’’ (Spring 2020). He is not teaching in Fall 2020, and will teach ‘‘STA 5167 Statistics in Application II: Applied Linear Regression’’ in Spring 2021. He is serving as an associate editor of Biometrics. He received the Outstanding Young Researcher Award from the International Chinese Statistical Association (ICSA) in 2020.
