Francis Zwiers Honoured by SSC

PCIC Director Francis Zwiers has received the 2011 Award for Impact of Applied and Collaborative Work by the Statistical Society of Canada (SSC).

The SSC named Francis for the award "in recognition of his pioneering research at the intersection of climate science and statistics; for his fundamental contributions to the development of statistical methods for climate studies; for his national and international achievements in climate science; and for his outstanding record of public service."

The award recognizes outstanding contributions by SSC members in collaborative research and applied work, the importance of which derives primarily from its relatively recent impact on a subject area outside of the statistical sciences, on an area of application, or on an organization. Francis received the honour at the SSC annual meeting in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, June 12-15, and will deliver the SSC Impact Award Address at the 2012 Annual Meeting of the Society to be held June 3-6, 2012 in Guelph, Ontario.
