Dr. Zhang was interviewed about his work on post-selection inference.
“The problem today is that in many cases, researchers cannot replicate existing findings in the literature and they cannot produce the same conclusions. This is undermining the credibility of scientists and science. It is producing a crisis.”
“We need to embrace changes. We need to be more selective and careful about avoiding mistakes that lead to irreproducible results and invalid conclusions. Right now, this crisis represents enormous opportunities for statisticians, data scientists, computer scientists, and others to develop a more robust framework for research.”
