Stefano Favaro named IMS Fellow

Congratulations to Carlo Alberto Chair Stefano Favaro for being named Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS)!

Stefano received the award for outstanding and innovative contributions on random discrete distributions, with applications to Bayesian nonparametrics and abundance of unseen species; and for pioneering work on differential privacy and statistical fairness. Stefano will be honored at the IMS Presidential Address and Awards Ceremony at the Joint Statistical Meetings in Toronto later this year.

The designation of IMS Fellow has been a significant honor for over 85 years. Each Fellow is assessed by a committee of their peers and has demonstrated distinction in research or leadership that has profoundly influenced the field. Established in 1935, the Institute of Mathematical Statistics is a member organization that fosters the development and dissemination of the theory and applications of statistics and probability. The IMS has over 4,700 active members throughout the world. Approximately 10% of the current IMS membership has earned the status of fellowship.
