Prof Alan Agresti visited the IDEAL group funded by an ERS grant of RWTH-Aachen University and became Theodore von Kármán Fellow.
Professor Agresti is distinguished Professor Emeritus of Statistics at the University of Florida (1972-2010). He has published more than 100 articles and six books including the book "Categorial Data Analysis" from which we all learned about categorical data analysis.
He is fellow at the American Statistical Association since 1990 and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (2008) and was visiting professor at the statistics department of Harvard University from 2008 – 2014. We enjoyed the talks he give during his stay and discussed with him the evaluation of categorical data after covariate adaptive randomization for small samples.
