The ENVR initiated awards of Distinguished Achievement Medals and Early Investigator Awards largely to highlight and emphasize the cross-disciplinary focus of statistics and the environment. The awards focus on the recognition of outstanding contributions to the development of methods, issues, concepts, applications, and the initiatives of environmental statistics inclusive of the formulational and foundational effort. Emphasis is placed on categories descriptive of multiple disciplines, activities, and age groups across academic, government, and industrial statisticians and statistical scientists engaged in statistics and the environment. Early Investigator Awards intended to encourage greater participation and study in statistics and the environment are also integral features of this initiative. Awarded while at KAUST.
