On July 1, 2019, the Department of Statistical and Actuarial Sciences welcomed two new faculty members, namely, Grace Yi, Tier I CRC in Computational Neuroscience, and Cristián Bravo Román, Tier II CRC in Banking and Insurance Analytics. As well, Kristina Sendova was elected chair of the department last summer. We would also like to let it be known that A. Ian McLeod and Mary Millard officially retired as of June 30, 2019.

And congratulations to David R. Bellhouse for becoming an honorary fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries of the UK!  To quote him “I feel very honoured to receive this fellowship. I see it as the capstone of my career as a historian of statistics, probability, and actuarial science.”
