Professor Obloj, Tutorial Fellow in Mathematics at St John’s, received the award from the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS) after being nominated by his peers

Professor Obloj received his award for pioneering contributions in robust financial mathematics and related advances in probability theory and statistics, including theoretical and computational aspects of Skorokhod embeddings and martingale optimal transport problems.

Created in 1935, the IMS is a member organization that fosters the development and dissemination of the theory and applications of statistics and probability. The IMS has 4,200 active members throughout the world, and approximately 10% of the current IMS membership has earned the status of fellowship.

In receiving his award, Professor Obloj joins a line of distinguished Fellows stretching back over 85 years. Each Fellow is assessed by a committee of their peers and has demonstrated distinction in research or leadership that has profoundly influenced the field, and so being selected as a Fellow represents a significant honour.

Professor Obloj will be officially awarded his IMS Fellowship Plaque during an awards ceremony at the IMS Annual Meeting in June. Please join us in congratulating him on this great honour!
