Elyse Gustafson, Executive Director

I have been honored to serve as the IMS Executive Director since 1997.  Since the IMS is a smaller society, I get to do a little bit of everything from committees to publications and all the items in between.  If you have a question about anything IMS, ask me. When I am not working, you can find me on the tennis court, hiking, or hanging out with my family.





Laila Lunderman, Webmaster

I am a front-end developer and web consultant that has been proudly working with the Institute of Mathematical Statistics since 2005. My role includes maintaining the IMS website and providing assistance with email queries. I live in New Mexico with my husband, daughter, and German Shepherd, spending my free time baking and playing video games.



Tati Howell, IMS Bulletin Editor

I’ve been working on the IMS Bulletin since 2001, first as Assistant Editor and more recently as Editor. I consider myself very lucky that I love my job! I work from home, in London, UK, and when I’m not at my desk I’m usually out walking, singing, or running round a hockey pitch. I love to hear your news for the Bulletin, so do get in touch!



Patrick Kelly, IMS Production Editor

I joined the IMS as the production editor in 1990 and have been happily ensconced in helping produce some of the world’s best journals ever since. I feel lucky to work with such a great team and to meet some of the most interesting people working in the field. And yes, I have read your paper. The next issue will be out soon.
