He has held faculty appointments at Harvard University, Rice University, Texas A&M University, University of New South Wales and University of Wollongong. In 2008 Professor Wand became an elected Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science. He also has been awarded the two Australian Academy of Science honorific awards for statistical research: the Moran Medal in 1997 for outstanding research by scientists under the age of 40 and the Hannan Medal in 2013 for career research in statistical science. In 2013 he was awarded the University of Technology Sydney, Chancellor's Medal for Exceptional Research. He received the 2013 Pitman Medal from the Statistical Society of Australia in recognition of outstanding achievement in, and contribution to, the discipline of Statistics. Professor Wand is an elected fellow of the American Statistical Association and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics.

Professor Wand has co-authored two books and more than 110 papers in statistics journals. He has six packages in the R language on the Comprehensive R Archive Network.

In 2002 Professor Wand was ranked 23 among highly cited authors in mathematics and statistics for the period 1991–2001. He is also a member of the ‘ISI Highly Cited Researchers’ list. Since 2000 Professor Wand has been principal investigator on seven major grants. A recent one, an Australian Research Council Discovery Project, is titled ‘Semiparametric Regression for Streaming Data’ and will run for the years 2015–2017. Another is the `Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers of Big Data, Big Models, New Insights' and is running during 2014-2020.

### Research Interests

Professor Wand is chiefly interested in the development of statistical methodology for finding useful structure in large multivariate data sets.

Currently, Matt’s specific interests include: variational approximate methods, statistical methods for streaming data, generalised linear mixed models, semiparametric regression, spatial statistics, multivariate density estimation and feature significance.

He is also very interested in Statistical Computing and contributes to the field's main software repository — the ‘Comprehensive R Archive Network’.

Recent research by Wand and co-authors on real-time semiparametric regression is described on the Real-time Semiparametric Regression website (opens an external site).
