Prof. Birgir Hrafnkelsson from the Department of Mathematics at the University of Iceland, will visit extSTAT during February 24-March 2, 2019. His research interests include Bayesian hierarchical modeling, spatial statistics, spatio-temporal modeling, extreme value analysis and statistical modeling of environmental data. His current research projects involve computation for latent Gaussian models, spatio-temporal modeling of glaciology data with inclusion of PDEs, statistical modeling of earthquake engineering data and spatial modeling of flood data.
Prof. Hrafnkelsson will give a seminar on "Approximate posterior inference for latent Gaussian models with a multivariate link function." Details about the seminar can be found below.
