Stromberg Named Fellow of American Statistical Association

LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 30, 2017) — Arnold Stromberg, professor and chair of the Department of Statistics in the University of Kentucky College of Arts and Sciences, has been named a fellow of the American Statistical Association (ASA).

The honor is conferred upon less than one percent of the ASA’s membership, and is comprised of statisticians from academia, business, government and research organizations from around the world.

“I’m grateful to the Department of Statistics, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the university for providing an environment that allowed me to achieve this honor,” Stromberg said.

Stromberg will be officially recognized at an awards ceremony in August during the Joint Statistical Meetings in Baltimore with the other 2017 fellows. He will be recognized for important research contributions in robust statistics and bioinformatics; administrative leadership transformative to statistical consulting and education; and outstanding service to the ASA and the profession.

“(The ASA Fellows) had a tremendous impact on the way we understand data and interpret the world around us and have proven that collaboration, innovation and the ability to solve complex real-world problems are all possible with statistics,” said Barry Nussbaum, president of the ASA.
