Last Friday was a pretty good day for one of my grad. students, Ryan Godwin. Not only did he get a job offer for a tenure-track position, but he saw one of his journal articles in print for the first time. It doesn't get much better than that!
Today, of all days, it seems appropriate to mention an outstanding Irish statistician - one who made seminal contributions to "economic statistics", as well as to mathematical statistics. I'm referring to Robert ("Roy") Charles Geary.
