I’m in Rome at the International Workshop on Computational Economics and Econometrics. I gave a seminar on Monday on the ever-popular subject of data visualization. Slides are here. In a few minutes, I’ll be speaking on Inference in Complex Systems, a topic of some interest from practical research experience my colleague Rick Hood and I have had in health and social care research.

Here’s a link to my handout for that: iwcee-handout

In essence, we draw on realist evaluation and mixed-methods research to emphasise understanding the complex system and how the intervention works inside it. Unsurprisingly for regular readers, I try to promote transparency around subjectivities, awareness of philosophy of science, and Bayesian methods.
