November 2021

Nonparametric Simulation Extrapolation for Measurement Error Models (Preprint) (Spicker, Dylan, Wallace, Michael P., and Yi, Grace Y.)

Submitted for consideration (November 2021). (Arxiv Preprint)

June 2021

The Harms of Historical Hyperbole. (Spicker, Dylan)

Talk given at the Statistics and Actuarial Sciences Student Seminar Series (SASSSS). (2021, Waterloo). (PDF of Slides. Note, these slides were originally presented as an interactive presentation, rather than PDF, so some is lost in translation. I am working on figuring out how to display the presentation here better! Apologies.)

Measurement Error Corrections with Non-IID Auxiliary Data. (Spicker, Dylan)

Talk given at the Statistical Society of Canada general meeting (2021, Digital Conference [Thanks, COVID]). (PDF of Slides)

May 2021

Submitted for consideration (September 2021). (Arxiv Preprint)

March 2021

Statistical Society of Canada SARGC Video Competition 2021. (Winning Team; with Melissa Van Bussel)

Video competition, explaining the importance of statistics to a lay audience. Our video is available: ‘Using Statistics to break down COVID-19 misconceptions.’

August 2020

Measurement error and precision medicine: Errorā€prone tailoring covariates in dynamic treatment regimes. (Spicker, Dylan and Wallace, Michael)

May 2020

Statistical Society of Canada Case Studies in Data Analysis Competition 2020. (Winning Team; with Melissa Van Bussel)

Case study competition for the SSC’s annual case study competition. Our project was titled: Forecasting iTunes popularity out-of-sample: in-sample validation for longitudinal and matching methods.

NSERC Postgraduate Scholarship - Doctoral (PGS-D) ($21,000 / year; 3 years)
