Dear PyMC developers,
My name is Larry and I am currently a first year PhD student in biostatistics at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto. My current research interests revolve around causal inference and Bayesian methods, and I intend to my second year learning more about (Bayesian) dynamic treatment regimes (DTRs) and Bayesian nonparametric (BNP) methods. Broadly speaking, my goals in this PhD program are to TA graduate mathematical statistics, contribute to medical research (especially under a Bayesian framework) and encourage open science (through the use of Python).
I would love to participate in the Google Summer of Code program working on the truncated Dirichlet process project proposed here. I was hoping to reach out to potential mentors @fonnesbeck, @AustinRochford and (at)ferrine* to hear your opinions and discuss further about this potential opportunity.
Here’s a bit more about me!
