Liem Sioe Liong/ First Pacific Co. Professor of Statistics:
Dr. Buja

A. Buja

Dr. Andreas Buja has been designated the Liem Sioe Liong/First Pacific Company Professor of Statistics, effective July 1, 2003.  Dr. Buja has been with Wharton since 2002, and had previous appointments at the University of Washington, Seattle, and Stanford University. He received his Ph.D. in mathematics and statistics in 1980 from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich.

Dr. Buja's research involves multivariate statistics, nonparametric statistics, and data visualization. He served as editor of the Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics from 1997-2001, and then as its advisory editor from 2001 to the present. His recent publications include "Visualization Methodology for Multidimensional Scaling," and "Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics."

The Liem Sioe Liong/First Pacific Company Professorship was awarded to the Wharton School in 1996 by Anthony Salim, president and CEO of the Salim Group, one of the largest Indonesian conglomerates, and its associated Hong Kong based First Pacific Company. The professorship is named for Mr. Salim's father, Liem Sioe Liong who was the key in building the First Pacific Company, and the professorship is symbolic for the growing role of globalization in the Asian business community.
