ONLINE COURSE – Applied Bayesian modelling for ecologists and epidemiologists (ABME06) This course will be delivwered live

20 July 2020 - 24 July 2020

£460.00

This course will now be delivered live by video link in light of travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak.

This is a ‘LIVE COURSE’ – the instructor will be delivering lectures and coaching attendees through the accompanying computer practical’s via video link, a good internet connection is essential.

TIME ZONE – Central European Summer Time – however all sessions will be recorded and made available allowing attendees from different time zones to follow a day behind with an additional 1/2 days support after the official course finish date (please email oliverhooker@prstatistics.com for full details or to discuss how we can accommodate you).

Course Overview:

This application-driven course will provide a founding in the basic theory & practice of Bayesian statistics, with a focus on MCMC modeling for ecological & epidemiological problems. Starting from a refresher on probability & likelihood, the course will take students all the way to cutting-edge applications such as state-space population modelling & spatial point-process modelling. By the end of the week, you should have a basic understanding of how common MCMC samplers work and how to program them, and have practical experience with the BUGS language for common ecological and epidemiological models. The experience gained will be a sufficient foundation enabling you to understand current papers using Bayesian methods, carry out simple Bayesian analyses on your own data and springboard into more elaborate applications such as dynamical, spatial and hierarchical modelling.

Intended Audience

Research postgraduates, practicing academics and primary investigators in ecology and epidemiology and professionals in government and industry.
