Moyal Medallist 2009

Moyal Medal Professor Peter Hall

The 2009 Moyal Medallist is Professor Peter Hall, Professor of Statistics at the University of Melbourne and the University of California, Davis.



The availability of powerful computing equipment has had a dramatic impact on statistical methods and thinking, changing forever the way data are analysed.  New data types, larger quantities of data, and new classes of research problems are all motivating new statistical methods.  We shall give examples of each of these issues, and discuss the current and future directions of frontier problems in statistics.

The talk is followed by a complimentary light supper. All are welcome.
