Keith Worsley, McGill University

Keith Worsley completed his PhD in 1978 on AID, a prototype data mining method, then worked on change point problems at McGill. At the beginning of the 90's he switched to brain mapping when the first PET brain activation data were being collected at the Montreal Neurological Institute. This led to several new theoretical developments in random field theory, which has been his main interest ever since. He is the author of the FMRISTAT statistical package for the analysis of fMRI data.

He is Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, and Associate Memeber of the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery, McGill University. He recently recieved the Killam Research Fellowship, the P.C. Mahalanobis Lectureship from the Indian Statistical Institute, and Fellowship of the Royal Society of Canada.
