Honorary Doctorate to Eva B. Vedel Jensen

The Faculty of Science, University of Bern, has awarded Eva B. Vedel Jensen a Doctor philosophiae honoris causa. This high-level academic recognition granted by the university was marked by a graduation ceremony on Saturday 7 December 2013.

The established relationship with University of Bern goes back to the nineteen-eighties where Eva B. Vedel Jensen attended an international stochastic geometry workshop in Bern, organized by Professor of Anatomy Ewald R. Weibel and Professor of Statistics Luis M. Cruz-Orive. This workshop became very important for the further development of the field of stereology and stochastic geometry. The close connection to Institute of Anatomy, Bern, is nowadays via the Microscopy Imaging Center (MIC). Eva B. Vedel Jensen has also an established scientific relationship to Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Bern, especially with Professor Ilya Molchanov and Professor Johanna F. Ziegel.
