Leeds Professor recognised in New Year Honours

Professor Kanti Mardia has been awarded an OBE for services to statistical science.

Professor Kanti Mardia’s work is at the forefront of medical imaging research. Currently a Senior Research Professor in the School of Mathematics, he was previously Chair of Applied Statistics – a position he had held since joining the University in 1973.

I have been very fortunate to work at two great universities – Leeds for 50 years as a full Professor and for the last 10 years with Oxford.

I am grateful to my PhD students, Research Fellows, colleagues and collaborators who work together to make such a large and successful statistical community here in Leeds, and more widely across the UK and internationally.
