News & Announcements

The Department of Statistics learned that Professor Lai passed away in the early morning of Sunday, May 21st. As many of us knew, he had suffered from health setbacks in recent years, but this sudden news came as a great shock. We all have fond memories of his enthusiasm for our field in general, and the department in particular.
In their official announcement today, the Royal Society named the exceptional scientists who will make up the newest cohort of Fellows of the UK’s national academy of sciences.
This year's election of new members to the AAAS honors excellence, innovation, and leadership and recognizes a broad array of stellar accomplishments among the individuals named. We are so proud to announce that Amir is among this group.

The Statistics, Data Science and MCS Diploma Ceremony is Sunday, June 18th
