Savage award honourable mention!

The results for the 2010 Savage award, bestowed by the International Society for Bayesian Analysis for PhD theses in Bayesian statistics, just came in. I am very pleased and honoured to have won the honourable mention in the Applied Methodology category! I shall be presenting the work (Phylogenetic Models of Language Diversification) at JSM in Miami in August.

I am very grateful to the award committee, and am as always thankful for the fantastic supervision I received from Geoff Nicholls.

This is a good year for French statistics, since Julien Cornebise won the award in the Theory category! Congratulations to the other winners, Ricardo Lemos and Daniel Williamson.
