Sudipto Banerjee, Professor and Chair of the UCLA Department of Biostatistics, is now President-Elect of the International Society for Bayesian Analysis (ISBA)

As elaborated at https://bayesian.org/, ISBA has emerged since its founding in 1992 as the leading professional society in the scientific community advancing Bayesian statistical methodologies, which have had a transforming impact on the field of biostatistics. ISBA has also been influential in bridging statistical science with other allied disciplines as data science has emerged as crucially important to academic and societal pursuits in the 21st century. Professor Banerjee can add this noteworthy reflection of his scientific leadership to his distinguished achievement of having been elected a Fellow of ISBA in 2018.
