Krzysztof (Chris) Burdzy, Professor of Mathematics and Adjunct Professor of Statistics at the University of Washington, USA, has been named the 2016 IMS Carver Medalist. Chris receives the award for leadership in the development and curation of electronic publications for the IMS probability community, especially for co-founding the Electronic Journal of Probability and Electronic Communications in Probability, and the Probability Abstract Service, as well as for sustained vigilance and dedication to ensuring the stability and open access for these publications and for serving as an informed resource for IMS on electronic issues.

Chris said he was “deeply honored” to be chosen. He will receive his award at the Presidential Address and Awards Ceremony, at the World Congress in Toronto in July.

The Carver Medal was created in 2002 in honor of Harry C. Carver, Founding Editor of the Annals of Mathematical Statistics and one of the founders of the IMS. The medal is for exceptional service specifically to the IMS and is open to any member of the IMS who has not previously been elected President.

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
