He is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association, the Institute of Mathematical Statistics, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. In 2000, he was awarded the Director's Award from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for "extraordinary leadership and vision in implementing strategies that enhance the disaster resistance of the University of California, Berkeley, and universities throughout America”. He received the 2005 Snedecor Award, the Harvard University 2012 Marvin Zelen Leadership Award in Statistical Science, and the 2018 Cupples Award for Excellence in Teaching, Research, and Service in Biostatistics from Boston University.
