Bernoulli Society New Researcher Award 2021

The New Researcher Award recognizes the work of outstanding young researchers who are members of the Bernoulli Society. This year the award was for innovative contributions in the field of Mathematical Statistics. Out of 22 applicants, the award committee chose the following new researchers for the award: Fang Han (University of Washington), Aaditya Ramdas (Carnegie Mellon University) and Anru Zhang (University of Wisconsin-Madison). Each of the above awardees is invited to deliver an invited talk at the Bernoulli Society New Researcher Award Session at the 63rd ISI World Statistics Congress, which takes place virtually from July 11-16, 2021. They received funding from the Bernoulli Society for their conference registration.

 

Ewain Gwynne wins inaugural David G. Kendall Award

The David G. Kendall award for young researchers is awarded jointly by the Bernoulli Society and the Royal Statistical Society to recognize excellent research in Mathematical Statistics and in Probability Theory. The award is in honor of David G. Kendall, who was the first president of the Bernoulli Society, and was awarded the Guy Medal in Silver (1955) and in Gold (1981) of the RSS. The Bernoulli Society is proud to announce that the inaugural award for 2021 is given to Ewain Gwynne (University of Chicago).

 

Willem van Zwet Medal awarded to Maria Eulália Vares

Our dear colleague Maria Eulália Vares has been awarded the inaugural Willem van Zwet Medal for Special Service to the Bernoulli Society in recognition of her outstanding service to the Bernoulli Society as member and chair of the Publications Committee, and as editor of Stochastic Processes and their Applications (SPA). She played a key part in negotiations with Elsevier concerning the Bernoulli Society’s journal Stochastic Processes and their Applications, showing great leadership in helping to obtain better prices and open access conditions for SPA and initiation of Elsevier's support for young researchers and students to participate in Bernoulli Society sponsored meetings, among other benefits. She has also served the Latin American Regional Committee and joined in organization of Bernoulli-sponsored events such as the Brazilian School of Probability, thus promoting the development of Probability and Mathematical Statistics in Latin America.
