Victor Chernozhukov, a professor of Economics and core faculty member of the SDSC and the Institute for Data, Systems, and Society, has been named Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS). Chernozhukov received the award for path-breaking contributions to high-dimensional inference.

Each Fellow nominee is assessed by a committee of their peers for the award. In 2019, after reviewing 58 nominations, 25 were selected for Fellowship.

Created in 1935, the Institute of Mathematical Statistics is a member organization which fosters the development and dissemination of the theory and applications of statistics and probability. The IMS has 3,500 active members throughout the world; approximately 12% of the current IMS membership has earned the status of fellowship.

An induction ceremony took place on July 29, 2019, at the Joint Statistical Meetings in Denver, Colorado.
