Professor Jim Albert will be joining us. He is currently visiting ACEMS. It is a good opportunity for us to meet with him and ask any question we might have related to his research.
Here is a short intro of Prof. Jim Albert: “Jim Albert is Professor of Statistics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Bowling Green State University. He is the author of Bayesian Computation with R, and co-author of the books Curve Ball, Ordinal Regression Modeling, R by Example, and Analyzing Baseball with R. His interests include Bayesian modelling, statistics education, and the application of statistical thinking in sports. He has previously been editor of The American Statistician and the Journal of Quantitative Analysis of Sports. He is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association and recently received the Founders Award for distinguished service.”
Mahasen will be presenting on “Dual-purpose Bayesian design for parameter estimation and model discrimination of models with intractable likelihoods.”
Shovanur will be presenting on “The new methodology developed in the study that uses a Markov chain based Monte Carlo simulation method for assessing linkage accuracy, using ABS (Australian Bureau of Statistics) synthetic data in “realistic” data settings.”
We look forward to seeing you there!
