About Michael Betancourt

I am a once and future physicist currently masquerading as a statistician in order to expose the secrets of inference that statisticians have long kept from scientists.  More seriously, I am developing freely available case studies focused on introducing the important but often overlooked principles of practical Bayesian inference with accompanying exercises in R and Python.  Current case studies can be found at https://betanalpha.github.io/writing/, with many more -- from regression to hierarchical modeling and meta-analysis -- in development.
