Bin Yu Selected to deliver 2023 Wald Memorial Lectures
We are excited to announce that Professor Bin Yu has been selected to deliver the 2023 Wald Memorial Lectures, which will be held at the Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM). The Wald Lecturer is chosen annually by the IMS Committee on Special Lectures and is the highest honor bestowed by the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS). Bin Yu joins a list of distinguished Berkeley colleagues who have received this honor, including her two PhD mentors, Lucien LeCam and Terry Speed.
This lecture series usually consists of two, three, or four individual lectures, each fifty to sixty minutes in length. Each lecture is given in a stand-alone session, which allows time for an introduction beforehand, and an extended question and answer session afterward. The 2023 Wald Lectures will be featured at the JSM, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, August 5 – 10, 2023. Read more about the award here. Congrats Professor Bin Yu!
