The Fellows, who came from the United States, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, New Zealand and South Korea, received certificates during a ceremony at the annual Joint Statistical Meetings in Vancouver, Canada, on Aug. 3.

Choosing Levine

Levine was chosen for his “outstanding methodological contributions and groundbreaking applicates in the area of Monte Carlo statistical methods, for curricular developments and teaching innovations in computational statistics, and for exemplary service to the profession."
