"Associate Professor Ihaka, of the Department of Statistics, was recognised with the Royal Society’s Pickering medal for his part in developing the statistical computing software R. R, created over 15 years ago by Dr Ihaka and colleague Robert Gentleman (now at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle), is free software used by academics, industry and government worldwide to analyse numerical data and present it in graphical forms. Computer programmers globally have contributed to R, with over 1000 industry-specific add-ons created."
