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.
