Steven Stern is currently the Professor of Data Science at Bond University. Previously, he was the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Chair of Statistics at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) from 2013 to 2016 and prior to that was on the Faculty of the Australian National University (ANU) for nearly two decades. He received his Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics in 1986, his Master's degree in Applied Statistics in 1987 and his PhD in Mathematical Statistics in 1994 all from Stanford University. He is an award winning teacher, receiving the Vice Chancellor's Award for Teaching Excellence from ANU in 2002 and has been recognized by the Australian Teaching and Learning Council for his work in statistical education. In addition, he is a highly sought after data analyst and consultant, having undertaken work for numerous government departments and industry bodies. His research interests cover the full range of data analytics and statistical methodology, but he is probably best known for his work in sports statistics and is currently the custodian and co-creator of the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) method, the official approach to handling interruptions in international limit overs cricket matches.
