William Eddy Receives Jerome Sacks Award for Cross-Disciplinary Research

William F. Eddy recently received the Jerome Sacks Award for Cross-Disciplinary Research by the board of trustees at the National Institute of Statistical Sciences Joint Statistical Meeting. Eddy was honored for “serving as a model statistician engaged in cross-disciplinary research, including his pioneering work at the interface of statistics and computing, his research over several decades on functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) data, his contributions to the analysis of census data and statistics in forensic science, and especially for introducing hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students to cross-disciplinary research outside the classroom.” A lifetime national associate of the National Academy of Sciences, Eddy is CMU’s John C. Warner Professor of Statistics, emeritus.
