The Statistical Society of Australia is pleased to announce the following webinar:
Tales of an Applied Statistician
with Marijke Welvaert
on Friday, 20 March 2020, 1 pm AEDT
About this webinar
I started my university studies with a degree in experimental psychology. Fast forward a few years, and I found myself in the midst of a debate on how to analyse my thesis data. Should I use the techniques I learned in my stats courses or the method advocated in the research field? This sparked my interest to pursue a career in applied statistics. 10+ years later and working several jobs in different domains, I collected some tales on the use of statistics in practice. In this seminar, I would like to walk you through some history and discuss how us statisticians can help overcome the bridges between statistics and their applications.
