I am delighted to have been invited as a tutor to the Wellcome-Trust funded course on Model Parameter Estimation for Predictive Medicine organized by Sara Jabbari and Joanne Dunster. The course is being held from 4th-7th July at the University of Birmingham and is jointly run with the University of Nottingham.
The course promises to be extremely interesting, covering classical approaches to fitting dynamical models to data along with its main focus on Bayesian approaches, especially MCMC. Particularly pleased to be teaching alongside my colleagues Simon Preston and Theodore Kypraios.
Fitting models to data is a crucially important skill that has been somewhat neglected in mainstream mathematical biology and medicine so it is really great that Sara and Joanne have organized this and that Wellcome Trust has funded it. Do sign up!
