Herbie Lee: “Computer Model Emulation”
May 3, 2011 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
Many modern problems involve computer simulations of physical or social processes. The field of statistics provides a range of tools to help with the design, analysis, and use of computer simulators. This talk will give an overview of these problems and the statistical perspective, with applications ranging from rocket science to hydrology to health care policy.
Herbie Lee is Professor of Applied Mathematics and Statistics and Interim Vice Provost for Academic Affairs, UCSC. Dr. Lee’s research focuses on Bayesian statistics, particularly computer models and connections between statistics and machine learning. He has published numerous articles and two books: Multiscale Modeling: A Bayesian Perspective (Springer) and Bayesian Nonparametrics via Neural Networks (SIAM). He is also well known as an outstanding teacher of statistics at all levels.
This talk is present as part of the The Linguistics Research Center Brown Bag Lunch Series.
