A Lithuanian professor and researcher will join the Department of Mathematics beginning in spring 2010 as the Robert and Rene Glidden Visiting Professor.

Professor Olga Januškevičienė is a senior researcher at the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics in Vilnius, Lithuania, and a professor at Vilnius Pedagogical University. She has authored and co-authored numerous research papers and monographs, as well as textbooks in statistics, probability and education.



"We just introduced a new statistics major at Ohio University, and it is great to bring in a statistics expert from outside with the introduction of that new major," said Vladimir Vinogradov, associate professor of mathematics. Vinogradov submitted a letter of recommendation for Januškevičienė to serve as a Glidden Visiting Professor.



The Robert and Rene Glidden Visiting Professorship is an annual program that supports short-term academic appointments for distinguished visitors to the university. Its purpose is to expose Ohio University students and faculty to outstanding scholars, and make such individuals aware of the strengths and resources of Ohio University. Glidden Professors are expected to be individuals who have attained wide recognition based upon artistic, engineering, historical, literary or scientific achievement.



Januškevičienė holds a hab. doctorate -- or super-doctorate -- degree in statistics and probability from the Lithuanian Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, a doctorate in statistics from the University of Vilnius, a master's degree from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and a bachelor's degree in education from Moscow Saint Tikhon's Orthodox University of Humanities.
