Congratulations to Kevin Lu on being awarded the Chris Heyde Scholarship for 2015.
When asked about this achievement Kevin Lu said "I am grateful and honoured to receive the Chris Heyde Scholarship. This award will help me support my studies at ANU. My supervisor has often spoken of Chris Heyde as a great probabilist and I hope to learn from his example. I would like to express my gratitude and thanks for giving me this exciting opportunity".
Professor Chris Heyde was well known and well regarded amongst his colleagues and friends for his substantial contribution to many areas of probability, statistics and stochastic analysis during his lifetime.
