2019 Recipient of the Worsley Award: Varvara Vetrova
Varvara’s research is in the intersection between applied statistics and machine learning.
Her contribution lies in methods for fine-grained image recognition with small sample sizes and imbalance classes, and statistical methods for bivariate data analysis.
These methods have numerous applications.
2019 Recipient of the Littlejohn Award: Richard Arnold
A background in physics has led Richard to successfully apply techniques of mathematical and computational modelling across a wide range of statistical problems.
These include the theory and practice of directional statistics, and applications in ecology, reliability, linguistics and seismology.
