At today's Environmental Data Science Lunch, we're looking forward to welcoming Jess Pieraccini Kunke, from UChicago's Department of Statistics . As requested, she will do a technical training on:
The bootstrap: principles, variations, and applications
Bootstrapping is not a single method but a variety of methods that can be used to help estimate uncertainties and test hypotheses in a wide array of contexts. We’ll introduce the basic principles of bootstrapping and the types of questions or goals that bootstrapping can help address. We’ll also go through some concrete examples and discuss the theory and assumptions behind the methods we examine.
