About EMERGE

EMERGE is a discussion and social group for ‘career-young’ researchers and students interested in development and application of statistical methodology, based at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. We also very much welcome people from other institutions.

Some of the the aims of EMERGE are:

  • to enable us to present work-in-progress in a relaxed atmosphere
  • to ask questions about problems we are facing in our research
  • to bring questions about challenges being faced by colleagues in applied projects
  • to discuss an article/sets of articles on a specific topic
  • to discuss use of particular software, or share some work you have done on new software
  • to provide an audience for practising presentations
  • to encourage new collaborations, especially for PhD students
  • to hold mini-workshops on topics on which some of our members are knowledgeable
