The Lindley Award

Dennis Lindley was a scientist renowned for his work on Bayesian statistics, a method that factors in the uncertainties of a model by integrating prior knowledge about the event. In his honor, the International Society For Bayesian Analysis (IBSA) created the prestigious Lindley Award that gives prominence to innovative research in this field.

On the occasion of the IBSA International Congress held in Edinburgh in June 2018, four researchers were rewarded: Benoît Liquet (IPRA-LMAP/UPPA), Kerrie Mengersen (International Chair E2S UPPA/Queensland University of Technology), Anthony Pettitt (QUT) and Matthew Sutton (QUT). The Award was presented to them for their article “Bayesian variable selection regression of multivariate responses for group data” published in the Bayesian Analysis review.
