Approximate Bayesian Computation

Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) is an increasingly popular inference paradigm in applications where traditional (Bayesian or frequentist) inference is difficult because the likelihood function is e.g. computationally costly to evaluate or unavailable in closed, tractab- le form. In the course, we will start by briefly studying traditional Bayesian inference and different kinds of simulation-based inference methods in general.

Incomplete data: semi-parametric and Bayesian methods (Winter Conference)

Incomplete data is a common phenomenon in longitudinal studies based on surveys and/or population registers. In such studies individuals are followed through time and data may be incomplete due, e.g., to drop out/attrition (individuals intentionally leave the study, individuals leave the study because they move or die, etc.) and censoring (due to end of study, death, etc). Incomplete data may also arise due to selection mechanisms, for instance, in meta-analyses (publication bias) and causal inference in observational studies.
