GRADflix is an annual competition hosted by the University of Waterloo’s Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs (GSPA) in which graduate students create one-minute videos to describe their research. These one-minute videos act as an “elevator pitch” for graduate students to explain a complex idea to a non-specialist audience.
Our very own Luke Hagar (MMath in Statistics) has been selected as a finalist in this competition. His video titled “Beyond p-values: Sample size determination using Bayesian statistics” will be shared live along with the videos of the other finalists during this year’s showcase. This is the first time that the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science has been represented in the GRADflix competition.
The GRADflix 2021 Showcase is taking place virtually on Friday, January 29, 2021 from 3 to 5 PM (EST). After the finalists’ videos are shown live, the winners will be announced, and attendees can vote on the People’s Choice prize winner. The event will be streamed live on the GSPA YouTube channel and attendees can register online.
Please attend to show your support of Luke!
