In this webinar, Professor Vianey Leos-Barajas will deconstruct a complete analysis of data, from the scientific question that sparks an idea – to the completion of the analysis, and will discuss how it can be used for positive change. You will learn to embrace and be open about the subjectivity and biases that are found in all data sets. An environmental data analysis is more than the statistics and mathematics behind it — it’s an opportunity to tell an environmental data story.
Professor Vianey Leos-Barajas will be joining the Department of Statistical Sciences and The School of the Environment as an assistant professor in July 2020. Professor Leos -Barajas primarily works in the area of statistical ecology, with a focus on the analysis of animal movement and time series modeling. Most recently, she began working in environmental statistics and spatial modeling of disease data. Vianey looks forward to pursuing collaborative projects with researchers from both departments at the University of Toronto and creating an ecological and environmental data science group.
