The induction makes the chosen professors to make regular contributions to the academy. As per which, researchers will be taking part in researches and will also help in publishing the studies carried out in different fields.
"Being inducted is an affirmation of my work in statistics, and it is also a recognition of my collaborators, including students and postdocs, through the recognition of our joint work", said Yu.

Experts suggest that the selection indicates about the strength of an institution that also works as a research centre.
