Introducing the ExIStA Early Career Section

ExIStA's Early Career section was launched on Wednesday 17th October with an afternoon event comprising of two speakers and a general discussion over wine and nibbles.  This first event had an extremes-related theme with Dr Theo Economou presenting his work on how deep low pressures can go followed by Dr Adriana Cornea who presented her work on reliable inference in the conditions of extreme events (both talks can be found here).

After the presentations there was an opportunity to network and, in particular, discuss different ideas for what sort of events and support ExIStA's Early Career section could offer.  Ideas included career presentations, online forums and a regular statistics clinic, as well as more events providing members the opportunity to present their work. 

Following this launch, we have put together an Early Career webpage, which contains more details about the section, some useful links and details of future events.  If you would like to get involved in the Early Career Section just email us at events@exista.org.
