Bayesian Network Workshop!
In keeping with its mission, Dr. Wayne Landis, Director, will be giving a 5-day Introduction to Bayesian Network Ecological Risk Assessment workshop August 13-17, 2018 at the SEA Discovery Center in Poulsbo, WA. Attendees will work in teams and, under the direction of Dr. Landis, learn: 1) the advantages of using Bayesian networks, 2) how to construct them using an online freeware and examples provided in class, and 3) the basics of incorporating Bayesian networks into the Relative Risk Model ERA framework. More information about the workshop, pricing, and accommodations can be found at https://ee.wwu.edu/bayesian.
Welcome to IET!
The Institute of Environmental Toxicology (IET) promotes the mission of the university by supporting instructional programs, as well as conducting research in the field of environmental toxicology for the benefit of undergraduate and graduate students, visiting scholars, professional colleagues, and grant-funding entities. Prospective students are invited to explore the opportunities for studying, conducting research, and obtaining a degree (B.S. or M.S.) in the environmental sciences with an emphasis in environmental toxicology described in more detail on this website. Scholars and colleagues are encouraged to contact us for opportunities in conducting research, collaborating on projects, or obtaining hands-on training in constructing and using our ecological risk assessment framework, the Bayesian network – Relative Risk Model!
