Title: Internship at Enthought

Abstract: A presentation to learn more about Enthought, and it’s summer internship program. Founded in 2001, Enthought helped establish Python's scientific community and became an early leader in scientific digital transformation. Our team of “scientists who code” pairs in-depth science expertise with data strategy, modeling, simulation, AI and more to transform businesses that depend on science. We solve complex problems for some of the most innovative and respected organizations across the oil and gas, life sciences, chemical, and semiconductor industries.

Title: Copulas and their Applications to Bayesian Analysis in Physics

Abstract: Many data-driven fields such as finance, meteorology, engineering and physics often encounter data with a high number of dimensions. Modeling multivariate data, even with low dimensionality, can be challenging. The copula is a statistical object that separately combines the correlations and the one-dimensional projections of a dataset into one entity. This property provides an effective way of modeling multivariate data that scales well with dimensionality. Another topic, Bayesian analysis, is used frequently in physics to estimate the likelihood of a particular measurement given data. I will discuss the copula and its applications to Bayesian analysis in neutrino physics, an explosively growing field over the past decade, which comes with a large number of physical parameters.
