Congratulations Professor Christina Goldschmidt, who was recently named a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS). The award was given to Prof Goldschmidt by a committee of peers, based on her 'fundamental contributions to the fields of coalescence and fragmentation theory, and to continuum limits for random trees and graphs'.

Created in 1935, the Institute of Mathematical Statistics fosters the development and dissemination of the theory and applications of statistics and probability. 

Prof Goldschmidt was one of 25 out of 58 selected for a Fellowship. The IMS estimates that 12% of its global membership (3,200 members) has earned this distinction.

'I'm really delighted to be honoured in this way,' said Prof Goldschmidt. 'The IMS plays a very important role in the international probability and statistics community.'
