Raymond James Carroll is an American statistician, and Distinguished Professor of Statistics, Nutrition and Toxicology at Texas A&M University. He is a recipient of 1988 COPSS Presidents' Award and 2002 R. A. Fisher Lectureship. He has made fundamental contributions to measurement error model, nonparametric and semiparametric modeling.
Carroll was born in
Japan of military parents in 1949 and grew up in Washington, D.C., Germany and Wichita Falls, Texas. He graduated with a B.A. from University of Texas at Austin in 1971 and a Ph.D. in Statistics from Purdue University in 1974 under the supervision of Shanti S. Gupta. He was on the faculty at the  University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from 1974 to 1987. He also had visiting positions at the University of Heidelberg, the University of Wisconsin, and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. Carroll has been a full professor of Statistics,  Nutrition and  Toxicology at  Texas A&M University since 1987, was head of the Department of Statistics from 1987 to 1990, and was named a  Distinguished Professor  in 1997. He has visiting appointments at the  Australian National University, the Humboldt University in Berlin and the National Cancer Institute. He was the founding director of the Texas A&M Center for Statistical Bioinformatics, and has been the director of Texas A&M Institute for Applied Mathematics and Computational Science since 2010.  He holds an  honorary doctorate from the Institut de Statistique, Université Catholique de Louvain in Belgium.  
Carroll's many areas of research include
measurement error model, nonparametric and semiparametric regression, inverse problem, functional data analysis, case-control studies, among others. His work has a broad variety of application fields, including radiation and nutritional epidemiology, molecular biology, genomics and many others. He has authored or coauthored 4 books, over 300 refereed papers and has given over 300 invited talks. He has supervised and mentored more than 30  Ph.D. students and can claim more than 90 descendants in his  mathematical genealogy. 
He received the
COPSS Presidents' Award in 1988 and gave the  Fisher Lecture at the 2002  Joint Statistical Meetings. He was the first statistician given a Method to Extend Research in Time (MERIT) Award from the National Cancer Institute. He served as editor of  Biometrics and  Journal of the American Statistical Association (Theory and Methods),  and chair of  ASA's Section on Nonparametric Statistics. A conference on "Statistical Methods for Complex Data" was held on the  Texas A&M University campus in honor of Carroll in 2009. In the same year, the Raymond J. Carroll Young Investigator Award was established to honor Carroll for his fundamental contributions in many areas of statistical methodology and practice.  The award is given bi-annually on odd numbered years to a statistician who has made important contributions to the area of statistics, with the recipients being  Samuel Kou and Marc A. Suchard, both are also COPSS Presidents' Award recipients.
