The IMS is pleased to announce the creation of a new award and lecture, to honor Grace Wahba’s monumental contributions to statistics and science. These include her pioneering and influential work in mathematical statistics, machine learning and optimization; broad and career-long interdisciplinary collaborations that have had a significant impact in epidemiology, bioinformatics and climate sciences; and outstanding mentoring during her 51-year career as an educator. The inaugural Wahba award and lecture is planned for the 2022 IMS annual meeting in London, then annually at JSM. Learn More
