Introduction to Bayesian Data Analysis + Statistics Laboratory

Lecturer: Dr. Jelena Pantel, University of Paris

Contents
Course Overview: The course is divided into two sections. Section 1 is a short course giving an Introduction to Bayesian Statistics. This course is a combination of lecture and hands-on computational analysis using the statistical programming language R. The course will be given in two sessions, each 4 hours long. Section 2 is a weekly meeting for 2 hours, where students gather with the instructor to analyze their own data. Students can discuss potential analyses with the instructor, get help trouble-shooting analysis problems, and benefit from data analysis in a more collaborative setting.


Course Description:
Part 1 – Introduction to Bayesian Data Analysis (Tuesday July 23 and Tuesday July 30, 1-5pm)

What is Bayesian statistics and why is it an increasingly popular choice for statistical data analysis? What can we do with Bayesian statistics that we can’t do with traditional ‘frequentist’ statistical tests? How can I follow a Bayesian analysis published in a scientific paper? How can I implement my own Bayesian analysis in the statistical programming language R?
This course presents an opportunity to answer these questions. Bayesian statistics is an alternate statistical framework – instead of choosing among a menu of existing statistical tests (e.g. t-test, ANOVA, regression) then using cut-offs (p-values) to assess whether or not predictors have an effect, in Bayesian statistics we specify models for processes we expect generated observed data and estimate distributions of likely values for model parameters given observed data. Students will gain familiarity with what it means to use Bayesian statistics, how model parameters are estimated, and will also learn to implement Bayesian alternatives to common statistical tests (e.g. estimating differences in means between two groups, a Bayesian alternative to a t-test, and
Bayesian estimation of parameters in linear models).

Part 2 – Statistics Laboratory (Wednesdays 2-4pm) – 4 weeks (July 24, July 31, August 7, August 14)
Students will work on analyzing their own data in a collaborative setting. Students who have collected data will work on analysis during lab (from formulating and learning appropriate statistical tests, to running analyses and communicating analysis results in text or as visualizations). Students planning to collect data will work on experimental design or generating and analyzing simulated data to better inform experimental design. Students who are not planning to collect data will work on a statistics project of their choice – this can be re-creating analysis from published manuscripts or learning R tools such as R Markdown (to generate documents with embedded R code) or Shiny R (to generate HTML-based interfaces for data analysis). Students will declare their Statistics Lab goals at the beginning of the course, and those will be re-visited each week.
