About the IMS Fellowship
Giving guidance on how to choose who to nominate to be a Fellow of the IMS, past Chair of the Committee on Fellows Philip Protter notes that one should look for a leader in research and in the community (leadership that can be demonstrated in many ways), as well as someone who has produced work that is “of exceptionally high quality.”
