Just heard the sad news that Peter Lee, British Bayesian and author of Bayesian Statistics: An Introduction, has passed away yesterday night. While I did not know him, I remember meeting him at a few conferences in the UK and spending an hilarious evening at the pub. When the book came out, I thought it was quite fine an introduction to Bayesian Statistics, with enough mathematical details and prerequisites to make it worthwhile studying, while also including computational recommendations. Fare thee well, Peter.

A few of us met (somewhat) early this morning to run together in memory of Susie, wearing the bright red tee-shirts given to us by the O’Bayes 2015 conference organisers. And going along the riverbed that circles the old town of Valencià. Till next run, Susie!
