Title: A statistician working with the media: stories of successes and disasters

WEDNESDAY 17/5/2023
12:15

Room 802, Postgraduate Studies Building

ABSTRACT

In 2007 I changed from being a researcher in statistical methodology to trying to improve the public understanding of statistics, which involved making TV programmes, writing (reasonably) popular books, writing articles, and appearing on the media.  I was extremely busy during the Covid pandemic, trying to explain the numbers and subtle statistical ideas, and trying to correct misinformation. I will describe both good, and very bad, experiences of being a ‘performing statistician’.
