Visit from researcher from the University of Rome

Professor Brunero Liseo from the University of Rome visited our Drs  Luciana Dalla Valle and Julian Stander to conduct research  on a project  entitled “High-Dimensional Bayesian Dependence Modelling
with Conditional Copulas” supported by a Royal Society grant.
One of the aims of the project is to use statistical models to providing a better understanding of how children’s eyes develop.  Because of the bad weather caused by Storm Emma, Brunero had to delay his return to Rome,  providing the team with an additional day to collaborate on the project.
