Our guest today is an American statistician, professor of statistics and political science, and director of the Applied Statistics Center at Columbia University.
He’s earned a Bachelor's in mathematics and in physics from MIT and a Ph.D. in statistics from Harvard University.
He frequently writes about Bayesian statistics, displaying data, and interesting trends in social science.
He’s also well known for writing posts sharing his thoughts on best statistical practices in the sciences, with a frequent emphasis on what he sees as the absurd and unscientific.
He’s done research on a wide range of topics, ranging from: why it is rational to vote, police stops in New York City,social network structure, arsenic in Bangladesh and radon in your basement and pretty much everything in between.
So please, help me in welcoming our guest today - the three time recipient of the Outstanding Statistical Application award from the American Statistical Association - Dr. Andrew Gelman!
