Lynne Billard

During Women's History Month, the Department of Statistics is honored to feature Professor Lynne Billard's timely article titled “Women Trailblazers in the Statistical Profession,” which provides a historical introduction to remarkable scholars from around the globe. This article appeared in the June 2020 issue of the International Statistical Review. There is also coverage of this article in UGA TODAY.


In her UGA article, Professor Billard aptly concludes: “One way or another, by their very presence, by their standards, each was a magnificent role model and mentor, not just to women, but to anyone working in the professional world.”
