The Fellows, and their citations, are:

Rami Atar:
for his fundamental contributions in applied and theoretical probability theory, specifically the analysis and control of stochastic networks and queues.

F. Jay Breidt:
for his influential contributions in time series analysis, survey sampling and environmental statistics.

Alexander Goldenshluger:
for his outstanding work in nonparametric and adaptive estimation, aggregation methods and change-point detection.

Thomas C.M. Lee:
for his influential work in the areas of nonparametric statistical methods, image processing, and multiple detection and tracking.

Richard A. Lockhart:
for his fundamental research in the area of model assessment and goodness-of-fit testing

Bin Nan:
for his influential contributions to statistical methods for semiparametric inference for complex survival data in the presence of missing data, bivariate survival data, and high dimensional data analysis in survival analysis.

Richard Samworth:
for his fundamental research in nonparametric classification, nonparametric inference under shape constraints and high-dimensional variable selection.

Martin Wainwright:
for his fundamental research in statistical machine learning and high-dimensional statistics, specifically sparse modeling, graphical models, data compression and coding.

Harrison H. Zhou:
for his influential work in Le Cam’s theory, nonparametric function estimation, and high-dimensional statistical inference, in particular: optimal estimation of large covariance and precision matrices.

Welcome to the IMS Bulletin website! We are developing the way we communicate news and information more effectively with members. The print Bulletin is still with us (free with IMS membership), and still available as a PDF to download, but in addition, we are placing some of the news, columns and articles on this blog site, which will allow you the opportunity to interact more. We are always keen to hear from IMS members, and encourage you to write articles and reports that other IMS members would find interesting. Contact the IMS Bulletin at bulletin@imstat.org

What is “Open Forum”?

In the Open Forum, any IMS member can propose a topic for discussion. Email your subject and an opening paragraph (to bulletin@imstat.org) and we'll post it to start off the discussion. Other readers can join in the debate by commenting on the post. Search other Open Forum posts by using the Open Forum category link below. Start a discussion today!
