Professor Bruno Sansó was elected as a Fellow of the International Society for Bayesian Analysis (ISBA). The formal induction of his fellowship took place at the ISBA 2016 world meeting in Sardinia, Italy in June 2016.

ISBA fellows are elected based on their outstanding contributions in statistical work, either through publications, teaching or service. Sansó was recognized for fundamental contributions in the application of Bayesian Methods in Spatial Statistics and Environmental Statistics, and for numerous services to the Bayesian community over the past ten years.

Sansó’s research is in Bayesian spatio-temporal modeling, environmental and geostatistical applications, modeling of extreme values, statistical assessment of climate variability.

Also of note is Baskin School of Engineering Applied Mathematics & Statistics Professor Raquel Prado’s keynote address at the 2016 ISBA World Meeting. With 650 experts in Bayesian statistics in attendance, Raquel Prado gave one of the four keynote plenary talks. Prado’s talk was on Bayesian Modeling Approaches for Brain Images and Signals.
