The Rajendra Bhansali Prize
Brief Biographical Information
The Rajendra Bhansali prize was established in 2015 through a donation made by Rajendra Bhansali and his family for promoting the study of Statistics, interpreted widely, as a subject area at the Imperial College, London.
Rajendra Bhansali obtained B.Sc(Econ) with Statistics as a Specialist Subject in 1967 and a PhD in Statistics in 1971 from the London School of Economics. During 1969-71, however, his PhD supervision was shared with the Imperial College and in that sense he is also an Imperial College alumnus.
Earlier in 1964 he obtained a B.Com. degree with Actuarial Science as an optional subject from the Sydenham College, University of Bombay, India.
Rajendra Bhansali joined the University of Liverpool, initially as a Lecturer in Statistics, in 1971 and successively held posts of Senior Lecturer, Reader and Professor. Upon his retirement in 2008 from Liverpool University, Rajendra Bhansali joined the Xian Jiaotong-Liverpool University, Suzhou, China as a Professor for three more academic years, 2008-11.
Professor Bhansali was appointed a Visiting Professor in Statistics at the Imperial College in 2010, a post he currently holds. In addition, Professor Bhansali is also an Emeritus Professor at the University of Liverpool.
Professor Bhansali's research is in Statistical Analysis of Time Series with special focus on Prediction Theory, Model Selection, Spectral Analysis, Long Memory Time Series, Stable Laws and Multiple Time Series. In addition his research also extends to statistical analysis of data collected over space and in higher dimension. He has published extensively in these areas.
Professor Bhansali is a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics, a Fellow of the American Statistical Association and an Elected Member of the International Statistical Institute.
Professor Bhansali currently serves on the Editorial Boards of the Italian Journal of Statistics and Journal of Forecasting and he has in the past served as an Associate Editor of the Journal of the American Statistical Association.
Professor Bhansali has held visiting appointments at several different universities in USA, Canada, Australia, Italy, Spain, Austria and Germany, including Carlos III University in Madrid, Spain, Texas A & M University in USA and University of Western Ontario, Canada
In addition to the Imperial College prize, similar prizes are also awarded at the London School of Economics for MSc in Risk and Stochastics, at the University of Liverpool for B.Sc in Mathematics with Finance and at the Xian Jiatong Liverpool University, Suzhou, China for B.Sc. in Mathematics with Finance..
