I have been a professor of Statistics at Université Paris Dauphine, Paris, France, since 2000, and at University of Warwick, Coventry, United Kingdom, since 2013, specialised in Bayesian statistics, numerical probability applied to simulation methods, and statistical inference with an interest mostly in genetics and astronomy applications, plus, on the unacademic side, a definitely unhealthy (but so far not fatal) fascination for mountains and (easy) climbing, an almost-sure daily run, and a reading list mainly centred at fantasy books… Plus in taking pictures of about anything appealing to be taken. Hence the categories on a blog I maintain since 2008...
The recent actions of Stack Exchange have been reprehensible. The lack of professional conduct, the tone deaf way they've been dealing with the community, and the unfair and unjustified way they've dealt with Monica Cellio.
Monica is an exemplar of the community, it's incredible how she's managed to keep a level head during this time when emotions have been very high.
