This issue of Inferential Interests is chocka block with data and stats! Also, make sure you check out our podcast with ACEMS Director Peter Taylor over at The Random Sample! In the magazine, we talk to Dr Minh-Ngoc Tran, a keynote speaker at the ECSSC, about his career journey and coffee :). We also chat to statistics lecturer and R guru Dr Emi Tanaka, who tells us about her fave R packages. Our committee members Cam gives us his top 5 tips for statistical consulting, Ben tells us about his black eye from djent music and Jordan talks about contact tracing. Finally, a review on our picks for books on data management and workflow in Stata. Don’t forget the Early Career and Student Statistician Conference on 26th July to 1st August 2021 – we would love to see you there.
