Three UCLA Statistics faculty to be honored at JSM 2019 in Denver

Hongquan Xu has been elected a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS). The IMS Fellowship honors the outstanding research and professional contributions of its members. The decision to grant this honor to an IMS member is based on the member’s demonstrated distinction in research in statistics or probability. Each Fellow nominee is assessed by a committee of their peers for the award. Only about one-half of one percent of the IMS membership receive this honor each year.

Judea Pearl has been elected a Fellow of the American Statistical Association (ASA). The decision to grant this honor to an ASA member is based on the member’s contribution to the field of statistics, the ASA and society at large. This is very rare as only about one-third of one percent of the ASA membership receive this honor each year.

Rob Gould has been awarded the 2019 Waller Distinguished Teaching Career Award by the American Statistical Association (ASA). The Waller Distinguished Teaching Career Award recognizes an individual for sustained excellence in teaching and statistics education (for a minimum of 20 years). This very prestigious award is given to at most one person per year by the ASA.

Congratulations to Hongquan, Judea and Rob!
