Dr Renate Meyer, from the University of Auckland, NZ will be presenting a public lecture on “Surfing Gravitational Waves – Black Holes and Bayesian Nonparametrics”.

All are invited to attend the lecture proudly hosted by the School of Mathematics and Applied Statistics on Wednesday 31st October at 11.30am in room 32.G01.

Renate has wide research interests in applied Bayesian inference and MCMC methods. She has been collaborating for many years with astrophysicists on the analysis of gravitational wave data.

Her research areas comprise time series analysis with applications in astrophysics, state-space modelling in ecology, multivariate modelling using copulas, survival analysis in medical statistics, and stochastic volatility models for financial time series.
