Doug Altman

I am very sad to tell you that Doug Altman died on June 3rd 2018. Doug was a great friend and a wonderful collaborator, with whom I have 100 publications.

He will be missed.

We made one another laugh.

Publication milestones

In October 2018, I achieved my 500th publication in all formats and my 300th refereed paper.

Fairly meagre compared to Doug.
