Fisher was an inventive statistician who put the theory of estimation on a sound footing. He worked at the Rothamsted Experimental Station from 1919 to 1933, when he became Professor of Genetics at UCL. Ten years later, he returned to Cambridge. His idea of the information matrix has developed into a deep theory of Riemannian geometry in classical as well as quantum information theory.
