Agnes Herzberg, 2018 U of S honorary degree recipient

Congratulations to Queen’s University Statistics Professor, Agnes Herzberg, who will receive an honorary degree from the University of Saskatchewan (U of S)

During the University of Saskatchewan (U of S) Spring Convocation ceremonies from June 4-7, eight individuals who have made a worthy and unique contribution to their community will receive honorary degrees.

Through conferring honorary degrees––the highest honour the U of S can bestow on an individual––the university recognizes individuals who have achieved outstanding accomplishments in research, scholarly and artistic works; performed exceptional public service; contributed greatly through their professional or philanthropic activity; and demonstrated great athletic prowess.

A noted Canadian statistician and U of S grad, Herzberg researches the statistical design of experiments including contributions to the design of clinical trials in medicine. Most recently, she co-authored a paper examining the noteworthy properties of Sudoku puzzles, including its potential for data compression.
