Statistical Methods Series: Generalized Additive Models (GAMs)
The Ecological Forecasting Initiative and the ESA Statistical Ecology Section are hosting Dr. Gavin Simpson for the January call in the Statistical Methods Seminar Series. Dr. Simpson is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Animal Science at Aarhus University. Dr. Simpson's research uses approaches to modelling large regional to global spatio-temporal data sets using generalized additive models (GAMs) and functional statistical methods to examine broad ecosystem responses to environmental change. He is an active member of the R and Data Science communities and was a lead developer on the vegan package for multivariate data analysis (e.g. ordination methods), wrote the permute package for restricted permutation tests that allow multi-species data analyses from complex experimental designs. Dr. Simpson is currently developing a package, gratia, to work with GAMs fitted in R.
