The final session of the Applied Statistics workshop will be held this week. We will present a talk by Adam Glynn, assistant professor of political science at Harvard. Professor Glynn received his Ph.D. in statistics from the University of Washington. His research and teaching interests include political methodology, inference for combined aggregate and individual level data, causal inference, and sampling design. His current research involves optimal sampling design conditional on aggregate data and the use of aggregate data for the reduction of estimation error.
Professor Glynn will present a talk entitled "Alleviating Ecological Bias in Generalized Linear Models with Optimal Subsample Design." A background paper is posted on the course website. The presentation will be at noon on Wednesday, May 2 in Room N354, CGIS North, 1737 Cambridge St. As always, lunch will be provided.
