Seminar by Sir D. J. Spiegelhalter


Speaker: Sir D. J. Spiegelhalter

Titke: "A statistician working with the mediastories of successes and disasters"

Room 802 Postgraduate Studies Building


 In 2007 I changed from being a researcher in statistical methodology to trying to improve the public understanding of statistics, which involved making TV programmes, writing (reasonably) popular books, writing articles, and appearing on the media.  I was extremely busy during the Covid pandemic, trying to explain the numbers and subtle statistical ideas, and trying to correct misinformation.  I will describe both good, and very bad, experiences of being a ‘performing statistician’.
