Statistical modeling - 1 hour

Statistical tools can be grouped into several categories, each category aiming at answering a certain type of questions associated to a certain type of data. Statistical modeling allows to investigate how variables change according to other variables, and to make predictions. This webinar quickly presents the principles of statistical modeling, with demos using the XLSTAT data analysis software.

Jean-Paul Maalouf

Senior statistics consultant

Jean-Paul Maalouf is a senior statistics consultant working at Addinsoft since 2014. He holds a PhD in biology and has a substantial experience in teaching statistics, an activity he has been intensively practicing since 2012. His training beneficiaries include major French research institutes (INRA, CNRS, INSERM, CIRAD, several universities) as well as private companies around the world. His teaching methods rely on explaining statistical tools conceptually rather than mathematically. Statistics become very easy to understand for the users who do not necessarily have experience in mathematics and need to become operational very quickly.
