Ronald A Fisher
R A Fisher was the Galton Professor in UCL from 1933
to 1943. He has been described as "a genius who almost single-handedly
created the foundations for modern statistical science" (Hald, A. 1998 A
History of Mathematical Statistics).
He was also one of the three
founding fathers of theoretical population genetics (the other two being
JBS Haldane, who was also in UCL, and Sewall Wright), a subject
fundamental to the interpretation of genomic data.
