IPAM Remembers Leland Wilkinson

Posted on 12/14/21 in News

Leland Wilkinson, chief scientist at H20, a long time IPAM Board of Trustees Member, and a great supporter of IPAM passed away on Friday Dec. 10th, 2021.   Leland’s work had enormous impact on a variety of fields, including statistics, data visualization, data science and machine learning.  He is well known for his book, The Grammar of Graphics, and for developing the SYSTAT statistical software package, both of which have been tremendously influential.  Leland will be greatly missed by all of us.
