Among them are a MacArthur Fellow (Susan Murphy), the current president of the International Statistical Institute (Vijay Nair), editors of leading statistics journals (Xuming He, Tailen Hsing and Naisyin Wang), and elected fellows of the American Statistical Association and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics.
