david_allison_storyDavid B. Allison, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor and associate dean for science in the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Public Health, has been elected to fellowship in the Institute of Mathematical Statistics.

To be considered for the IMS fellowship, candidates must have a demonstrated distinction in research in statistics or probability. Fellows are honored for outstanding research and professional contributions — both of which the IMS believes helps keep them in a leading role in the field.

Allison, along with the other newly elected fellows, is invited to the IMS Presidential Address and Awards Ceremony on July 11, 2012, during the eighth World Congress/IMS annual meeting in Istanbul.
