About the Author:
Mervyn Stone is an emeritus professor of statistics at University College London where he has been teacher, researcher and statistical adviser since 1968-before that, at the universities of Cambridge, Princeton, Aberystwyth, Michigan and Durham. He has been associate editor and trustee of Biometrika, editor of the methodology journal of the Royal Statistical Society and a member of its executive committee. His academic work in the theory of experimental design, formal Bayes methods, large deviations, cross-validation, coordinate-free estimation and in a wide range of applications of statistical reasoning from psychology to stem cells-has appeared in over 100 papers and in Coordinate-free Multivariable Statistics, Oxford Science Publications, 1987. For the last two decades, his work has embraced issues of public concern-water privatisation, changing clocks to save lives, attempts to measure the efficiency of police forces and universities, daytime vehicle lights, speed cameras, cycling accidents, NHS decision procedures and primary care trust funding. For the latter, he gave written and oral evidence to the House of Commons Health Committee inquiry into NHS deficits. Recently the tenor of his work has become openly critical, as in pieces published in the Statistics Corner of Civitas and in Civitas's immigration portfolio.
