Georges Lemaître 2018 Chair

Roberto Trotta, Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, Associate Professor in Astrophysics at Imperial College London, is one of the leading authorities in the application and development of Bayesian Statistics in Astrophysics and Cosmology. Director of the Centre for Languages, Culture and Communication at Imperial, scientific reporter, entrepreneur, consultant, exceptional speaker, his spectrum of expertise has no limit.

At the time where Science becomes multidisciplinary and where the exploration of the Universe is multi-messenger, the importance of the statistical methods used for data analysis and scientific inference has never been so critical. Roberto will give us the opportunity to learn the statistical methods of tomorrow.
