#### Almost Surely...

##### Stochastic Musings on Statistics, Software, and 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, software, and their myriad interactions in our modern world, as construed loosely by me, Nima Hejazi. The scope is necessarily broad – hopefully, ideas from statistical 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 – with the variety of topics necessarily explored to varying degrees of depth. The central goal of each post will be to explore the relationship between a statistical issue and how that issue may impact science and policy. On occasion, posts that diverge from the topics above may appear.

*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.
