Statistics Seminar Speaker: Ben Shaby, 10/25/2017

4:15pm @ G01 Biotechnology

The Statistics Seminar speaker for Wednesday, October 25, 2017, will be Ben Shaby, an assistant professor in the Statistics Department at Penn State. Shaby develops statistical methods and computational strategies, usually either explicitly Bayesian or with a Bayesian feel, with an eye toward environmental, ecological, and geophysical applications. This leads naturally towards thinking about spatial dependence, including dependence in extreme events. Shaby completed his Ph.D. work in Statistics at Cornell University with David Ruppert and Marty Wells.
