Title: Missing data mechanisms, imputation and sensitivity analysis
Abstract: This talk will give a brief overview of missing data mechanisms and common imputation methods. I will also outline a sensitivity analysis that I plan to undertake to explore the possible missing data mechanisms and to examine the effects of different imputation methods.
Title: Dengue fever modelling
Abstract: In this talk I’ll give a brief overview of a system of differential equations describing a biological system, focusing on the relationship between infected and uninfected cells, free virus, and immune response and discuss approaches to solving such a system inside a Bayesian statistical framework. The work forms part of the DARPA Intercept project, looking at using defective interfering particles to modify the replication of dengue virus within the human body.
