“It was great to be recognized for the quality of our work through the award, adding to the recognition we have already received from being accepted for publication in the prestigious journal Annals of Statistics (4+ at ABS)”, says Grønneberg

The Sverdrup Prize consists of two awards and is distributed annually by the Norwegian Statistical Association at det Norske statistikermøtet. The honorable award Grønneberg has received is given for the best article by a young scientist in Norway over the last two years. Additionally, an award is given to an eminent representative of the statistics profession.

“The article is a door opener, and our results are very applicable. Benjamin and I will continue our cooperation and based on this foundational work, we will publish a series of follow-up articles aimed at time series analysis and econometrics. I am very grateful for the scientific freedom we have at BI, as this makes it possible to have a long-term perspective, allowing us to be ambitious”, Grønneberg continues.
