About the Author
Hervé Abdia former Fulbright scholar and resident of the Paris Institute for Advanced Studiesis professor of cognitive neuroscience at the University of Texas at Dallas. His recent research interests focus on the development of analytical and statistical tools for the analysis of very large data sets as generated, for example, by brain imaging, genetic, genomic, and sensory science research. In addition to Partial Least Squares (PLS) models, he is also particularly interested in variable selection and in multi-modal, multi-way, and multi-block methods. He is the author of more than 250 publications (including 12 books) in these domains.
Vincenzo Esposito Vinzia former President of the International Society for Business and Industrial Statistics (ISBIS)is professor of statistics and Dean of the Faculty at the ESSEC Business School in Paris and Singapore. His research interests focus mainly on methodological developments in multivariate statistics, namely factorial methods, structural equation modeling, PLS regression, and predictive path modeling that are relevant to various applications in business and industry, sensory data, social surveys, and the measurement of customer satisfaction for commodities and public services.
Giorgio Russolillo is associate professor of statistics at the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (CNAM) of Paris where he is a member of the CEDRIC research group. His research interests involve multivariate data analysis models and methods applied to social and life sciences. Much of his current research focuses on PLS algorithms.
Gilbert Saportaa former president of the International Association for Statistical Computingis emeritus professor of applied statistics at the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (CNAM) of Paris. His research interests are in exploratory multivariate analysis: functional data analysis including functional PLS, sparse methods, and supervised classification.
Laura Trinchera is assistant professor of computational statistics at the NEOMA business school (Rouen Campus, France). Her research interests cover multivariate analyses, structural equation models (SEM), PLS methods. She is also interested in variable selection in regression models.
