Department News

The Statistics Department will host the ENVIBAYES Workshop on Environmental Data from September 18 to 20. The workshop aims to provide subcommunities within environmental and ecological statistics with a venue to share cutting-edge advancements within their own networks to further spark deeper knowledge gains. Furthermore, it will allow the transfer of knowledge between subcommunities, fostering collaboration, and encourage advances from the wider community of researchers in Bayesian analysis of complex datasets to percolate into the environmental domain.

This semester, book club will be reading The Data Detective by Tom Hardford. Meeting dates and times have not been set yet but if you’re interested, please submit information using this form.
