Abstract: In this talk I will describe my experience being a statistician in a dramatically and unpredictably changing field. I will share stories and adventures that I’ve had through my science making the basic point that, as scientists (and not only as statisticians) we need to have an awareness about the world and an entrepreneurial attitude in finding new opportunities and new ideas.

Short Bio: Dr. Yiannoutsos performs application-motivated research. He is interested in diagnostic test validation, sequential models, clinical-trial design and Bayesian methods.  His biomedical research focus is in HIV/AIDS, particularly in research-constrained settings in low to middle-income countries (LMIC).  He is co-director of the East Africa Regional Consortium of the International Epidemiology Databases to Evaluate AIDS (IeDEA), a consortium of health centers providing care and treatment to people living with HIV/AIDS in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. Dr. Yiannoutsos and his colleagues use data obtained from clinical care to address major epidemiologic questions about the worldwide HIV/AIDS pandemic.
