Robert Dalang, head of the Chair of Probability and Victor Panaretos, head of the Chair of Mathematical Statistics and Director of the MATH Institute, have been named Fellows of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS).

Their Fellowships will be officially conferred during the IMS Presidential Address and Awards Session on the 29thof July. 

Robert Dalang is nominated for his “pioneering contributions to the study of SPDEs driven by a Gaussian noise [...]”

His research concerns the study of quantities which vary randomly over space and time, according to fundamental partial differential equations that appear in physics, biology and the engineering sciences.

Victor Panaretos is nominated for his “contributions to functional data analysis and stochastic geometry [...]”

His research focuses on the analysis of random functions and their interactions with stochastic geometry and statistical inverse problems, as well as their applications in the natural sciences.

About the IMS

The Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS), created in 1935, is an international professional and scholarly society dedicated to the development and application of statistics and probability. The IMS has about 3500 members all around the world, amongst which approximately only 10 percent have earned the status of IMS Fellow.
