Bayesian model averaging and its use in political science

11 Jan 2019, Warwick

The PSA Political Methodology Specialist Group annual lecture featuring Professor Mark Steel.

Professor Mark Steel is interested in theoretical and applied Bayesian statistics, particularly distribution theory, Bayesian model averaging, spatial statistics, non- and semiparametric inference, survival models, stochastic frontier models, contingent valuation and stochastic volatility models. Part of his interests stem from his background in economics: he held a Chair in Economics at the University of Edinburgh from 1998-2000. He then moved to a Chair of Statistics at the University of Kent at Canterbury and has joined the University of Warwick in 2003.

The lecture will be held at SCA Space 11, Scarman, University of Warwick.
