Esteem Indicators

  • 2011: Awarded Michell Prize for Best Applied Bayesian Article Worldwide 2010.: The Michell Prize is awarded for the best applied Bayesian Statistics article worldwide, and is considered to be the top research prize for Bayesian Statistics. It is awarded jointly ;by the Section on Bayesian Statistical Science (SBSS) of the America Statistical Association, the International Society for Bayesian Analysis (ISBA), and the Mitchell Prize Founders' Committee. We were awarded this prize for the invited discussion paper, for which I was first author:
