Non-SOT Event: Bayesian Modeling for Environmental Health Workshop

Starts:  Aug 21, 2024 09:00 AM (ET)
Ends:  Aug 22, 2024 05:00 PM (ET)

This two-day intensive in-person workshop presented by the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health introduces the ideas of Bayesian inference and modeling in the context of Environmental Health, designed to be as approachable and friendly as possible while still providing technical and practical know-how. Led by a team of scientists with many years of diverse combined experience, the workshop will integrate seminar lectures with hands-on computer sessions to put concepts into practice. Several examples will be given using existing data, and conversations on starting new investigations with attendees' research questions will also be encouraged. The lectures and lab sessions will give an overview of the principles of Bayesian inference, as well as how to deal with different data structures, the various software options available, different types of analyses, and current and future research.

Investigators at all career stages are welcome to attend, and we particularly encourage trainees and early-stage investigators to participate.

Capacity is limited. Paid registration is required to attend.
