Almost Surely...

Stochastic Musings on Statistics and Modern Science

Disclaimer: At no time and under no circumstances are the ideas expressed on this blog necessarily endorsed by any organization with which I may be affiliated.

This blog is dedicated to exploring statistics, science, and their myriad interactions in our modern world, as construed loosely by Nima Hejazi. The scope is necessarily broad – hopefully, ideas from causal inference, nonparametric statistics, semiparametric theory, high-dimensional probability, machine learning, optimization, information theory, statistical computing, data science, applied statistics, and computational biology will all be explored, though to varying degrees of depth. In nearly all cases, the goal of a given post will be to explore the particular topic at hand with an eye towards examining the manner in which the statistical issue at hand impacts science and policy.

Trivialities: Though it emerged rather whimsically, the name of this blog merits some explanation – specifically, the term “almost surely,” from the notion of almost sure convergence, first captured my attention when I was studying the theory of stochastic convergence (of random variables). The choice of title now seems rather fitting given the topics to which this blog is dedicated.
