Dickson Prize for David Haussler

David Haussler is perhaps best known to geometers for the work he did with Emo Welzl on the theory of epsilon-nets, one of the most influential ideas in the area of randomization and computational geometry. He is also famous for his work in bioinformatics, specifically for the use of hidden Markov models for sequence analysis.

He was just awarded the Dickson Prize by CMU.
