Professor Christian Genest is one of the three recipients of the 2024 Lise Manchester Award from The Statistical Society of Canada (SSC).

The award recognizes excellence in state-of-the-art statistical work which considers problems of public interest and which is potentially useful for formation of Canadian public policy. 

Christian Genest (PhD, 1983, University of British Columbia) is a Professor and Canada Research Chair in Stochastic Dependence Modeling at McGill University. Well known for his pioneering work in extreme-value theory and copula modeling, he has long been interested in applications of statistical methods to insurance, finance, and hydrology. In recent years, he has turned his attention to the design of Bayesian hierarchical models for the frequency estimation of rare events.
