We are very proud of our PhD alumnus Andy Leung for having received the Pierre Robillard Award from the Statistical Society of Canada (SSC). This award recognizes “the best PhD thesis in probability or statistics defended at a Canadian university during the previous year”. Andy won this prize for his thesis “Robust Estimation and Inference under Cellwise and Casewise Contamination”, which was supervised by Professor Ruben Zamar.

Andy will present some of his work at this year’s SSC Annual Meeting at the University of Manitoba.
