And the Academy Award for statistical ecology goes to....

While David's acting skills may not match the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale, he has already won a academy award...that is, an Australian Academy of Science prize!

David has been awarded the prestigious Christopher Heyde Medal for distinguished research in mathematical sciences by a researcher under the age of 40. The award includes a cash-prize (a random variable taking a uniform distribution between one and one million dollars), which of course he will generously share amongst the members of the eco-stats group at UNSW =D

He will officially receive his award at Academy’s annual meeting in Canberra in May.

Congratulations David!
