Peter was one of the foremost and prolific researchers in the field of Statistics. Among his many honors, he was named in 2013 as an officer of the Order of Australia, the highest honor of that country, for his distinguished contributions to the field of statistics worldwide. In the same year he was also elected as a Foreign Associate of the National Academy of Sciences in the U.S.
