IAOS congratulates Gemma Van Halderen, for her Public Service Medal awarded in the 2024 Australian Day Honours. Gemma was recognised for outstanding public service in delivering significant statistical developments for better use of data for public policy purposes, both in Australia and internationally. Part of the award is in recognition of Gemma’s work in nurturing and developing early career statisticians and data professionals.
The IAOS has been very grateful for Gemma’s organisation of the IAOS Young Statistician Prize for a number of years. In this role she has helped mentor a number of young statisticians around the world. We have also valued her valuable contributions to the IAOS Executive and the SJIAOS.
On behalf of the IAOS, we congratulate Gemma on this award.
