Ihaka Lecture Series

8-22 March 2017

Ross IhakaIn March 2017 the Department of Statistics at Auckland University is launching a new, annual lecture series named after Associate Professor Ross Ihaka in honour of his contributions to the field.

Our debut series has the theme Statistical Computing in the Data Age and will run 8-22 March, 2017. Scheduled from 6pm to 730pm (lecture begins at 6.30pm), on March 8, 15, 22, and 29.


Statistics has become essential in the Information Age. We have increasing ability to collect vast quantities of data, but often still struggle to make sense of it. The Ihaka lectures aim to highlight the important role that both statistics and computing play in this endeavour.

We will be streaming them live for all of those who cannot join us physically.
Details of the stream link will be available on the page at the time of streaming.
