    Abstract for the seminar at 6:00 pm below.

    Title: Understanding the interpretation and presentation of statistical methods in the Australian criminal justice system.

    Abstract: Lani's PhD thesis (currently under examination) delves into how statistical evidence is presented in the Australian criminal justice system, examining how potential jurors and expert witnesses understand and present this evidence. In this presentation, Lani will provide valuable insights into the complexities of presenting statistical evidence in legal settings, highlight ways in which experts can assist in optimising lay comprehension, and discuss factors that may impact a potential juror's understanding of statistical evidence.

     Presenter: Lani Cronin

    Lani is a graduate data scientist with a strong background in forensic applications of statistics and presenting them to both lay and expert audiences. As part of Aurizon's Careers in Action program, Lani works in a team of data scientists focused on building commercial-scale machine learning models for the management and maintenance of rail network assets.
