UK Computational Statistics Researcher wins ISBA Mitchell Prize

Dr Ioanna Manolopoulou and her research collaborators have been awarded the 2012 Mitchell Prize by the International Society for Bayesian Analysis for their paper "Bayesian Spatio-Dynamic Modelling in Cell Motility Studies: Learning Nonlinear Taxic Fields Guiding Immune Response" for its sophisticated development of model-based inference methods in the expanding field of immune-cell dynamics.

The Mitchell Prize is awarded annually in recognition of an outstanding paper that describes how a Bayesian analysis has solved an important applied problem.
