Bayesian hierarchical models have become the standard approach in disease mapping due to their ability to obtain robust, reliable results even when data are sparse, and their direct probabilistic statements. Join this intrepid expedition into the models, visualisations, challenges and delights as we explore applications in cancer incidence and survival, and injury hospitalisations.

About Statistics, modelling and operations research seminars

Students, staff and visitors to UQ are welcome to attend our regular seminars.

The events are jointly run by our Operations research and Statistics and probability research groups.

The Statistics, modelling and operations research (SMOR) Seminar series seeks to celebrate and disseminate research and developments across the broad spectrum of quantitative sciences. The SMOR series provides a platform for communication of both theoretical and practical developments, as well as interdisciplinary topics relating to applied mathematics and statistics.
