We’re thrilled to hear that Priscilla (Cindy) Greenwood, a professor emeritus in UBC’s Department of Mathematics and an associate member in the Department of Statistics, has been appointed as a Member of the Order of Canada.
Congratulations on this big honour, Cindy!
You can read about Cindy’s award in the Governor General of Canada’s announcement.
The citation for the award reads: “For her contributions to the fields of statistics and mathematics, and for her pioneering work in probability theory”.
You can read a brief biography of Cindy on the Mathematics Department’s Awards page.
We wholeheartedly agree with Cindy’s home department, who say that “It is wonderful to see her honoured in this way”, and that this award is “well deserved for her many contributions”.
