Donald Rubin, Ph.D. ’70, John L. Loeb Professor of Statistics, has been honored by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Bonn, Germany, with the 2009 Humboldt Research Award. The award will permit Rubin to travel to Germany to collaborate with colleagues, primarily at Universität Bamberg. As one of the most prestigious awards in Germany for a non-German researcher, the Humboldt Research Award has been a central pillar of the foundation’s sponsorship since 1972, honoring the academic achievements of internationally recognized scientists and scholars outside Germany.
