Chris Skinner

The London School of Economics and Political Science released a statement following the death of Professor Chris Skinner on 21 February 2020 http://www.lse.ac.uk/Statistics/People/Professor-Chris-Skinner. I am sure many IASS members knew Chris well and will be saddened by the news. For those who would like to know more about Chris’ life, last year he gave a biographical interview for the International Statistical Review https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/insr.12356 .
