The International Society for Bayesian Analysis (ISBA) announced the latest 2020 ISBA Fellow list in June,

Chen Wanshu, a lifelong distinguished professor of the Department of Statistics of the school, was among them, becoming the first scholar from an Asian university to be honored in the Bayes Hall of Fame. Not only the teachers and students of the school are honored, but also Taiwanese. The official news is published in ISBA Bulletin.

ISBA has elected new ISBA Fellows every two years since 2012 to recognize ISBA members who have made outstanding contributions to statistical work for a long time. The 2020 ISBA Fellows are selected by 8 academician-level members of the review committee. Professor Chen's research expertise is financial time series analysis, statistical calculation, Bayesian statistics and forecasting. This time it stands out because of its outstanding contribution to Bayesian methodology, its influence on university teaching in the fields of time analysis and applied statistics, its leadership in statistical computing, and its broader leadership in the international statistical community. The committee members unanimously affirmed.

Bayesian method has been widely used in the research of big data analysis in various disciplines such as economics, finance, management, social science, public health, epidemiology, education and so on. In recent decades, many effective MCMC (Markov Chain Monte Carlo) sampling methods have been proposed, coupled with the rapid advancement of calculation speed, making Bayesian method more widely recognized and applied. Bayesian learning, Bayesian regression tree classification, and Bayesian network are all advanced techniques of machine learning. Bayesian modeling, parameter inference, classification, prediction and selection models have been the focus of research in recent years. With the help of calculation methods such as MCMC, important and complex practical problems can be solved.

Professor Chen Tepin's research results are excellent in quality and quantity. The academic journals published in SCI cover statistics, information, infectious diseases, medicine and other fields, while SSCI covers finance, economics, forecasting, management and other fields. He has won the ISI Elected Member, the Fellow (Fellow, the Royal Statistical Society, UK), and the Fellow (ASA Fellow, American Statistical Association) of the American Statistical Association in 2016. He has won honor for Taiwan in his academic career. .

Professor Chen was disappointed. He said that it is natural and honour to become an ISBA researcher with an internationally renowned Bayesian scholar, even though most of the researchers come from European and American universities and several universities in Australia. The fact that Chen's disappointed professor can become the first person in Asia also shows that perseverance, hard work and focus are the keys to success! She thanked Feng Chia University for providing high-quality research environment and long-term training and recognition. She especially hopes to share with young students, welcome to join the Department of Statistics of Feng Chia University, you will have the opportunity to become a rising star in the field of big data analysis!
