John Petkau Winner of the SSC Award for Impact of Applied and Collaborative Work

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/28/14 -- The 2014 recipient of the Statistical Society of Canada (SSC) Award for Impact of Applied and Collaborative Work is John Petkau, Professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver. The award recognizes outstanding contributions by members of the SSC 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. Professor John Petkau has made outstanding methodological contributions to the study of health effects of pollution and the study of Multiple Sclerosis.

A short biography of Professor John Petkau is available at:
