The second meeting of our New Phil Stat Forum*:
The Statistics Wars
and Their Casualties
September 24: 15:00 – 16:45 (London time)
10-11:45 am (New York, EDT)
“Bayes Factors from all sides:
who’s worried, who’s not, and why”
Richard Morey is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Psychology at the Cardiff University. In 2008, he earned a PhD in Cognition and Neuroscience and a Masters degree in Statistics from the University of Missouri. He is the author of over 50 articles and book chapters, and in 2011 he was awarded the Netherlands Research Organization Veni Research Talent grant Innovational Research Incentives Scheme grant for work in cognitive psychology. His work spans cognitive science, where he develops and critiques statistical models of cognitive phenomena; statistics, where he is interested in the philosophy of statistical inference and the development of new statistical tools for research use; and the practical side of science, where he is interested in increasing openness in scientific methodology. Morey is the author of the BayesFactor software for Bayesian inference and writes regularly on methodological topics at his blog.
