Congratulations to Pr. Jianqing Fan for being the first recipient of the Pao-Lu Hsu Prize, together with Xiao-Li Meng (Harvard) and Bin Yu (UC Berkeley).
The Pao-Lu Hsu Prize is presented every three years by the International Chinese Statistical Association (ICSA), to an individual under the age of 50, who makes influential and fundamental contributions to any field of statistics and probability.
This award recognizes their excellent scholarly accomplishments in statistical research as well as outstanding contributions to the development of sound statistics in Chinese communities. An award announcement was made at the Members meeting during JSM in San Diego earlier this month. An official award ceremony with special presentations by the award recipients will be held at the ICSA International Conference in Hong Kong, December 20-23, 2013.
Congratulations Professor Fan!
