Accredited Professional Statistician Mark Nicolich will give a talk at Mercer County Community College at noon on Thursday, Feb. 7, in the Communications Building, room 109. The discussion, “Why Do We Need Statistics?”, is part of the college’s Spring Distinguished Lecture Series held at the West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. The lecture is free and open to the public.
In his lecture Nicolich will share his insights and experiences with statistical analysis in several areas of research, and on discussions with his research colleagues about the use of, and need for, statistical analysis. This will include contemporary examples of an abused analysis method that is widely seen in the popular press and academic research papers.
A statistician for over 30 years, Nicolich has a Ph.D. in Statistics from Rutgers University. Through his consulting for educational institutions, health organizations, and corporations, he provides statistical design and interpretation in life sciences, forecasting, market research, and education. A former assistant professor of Statistics at Rider University, Nicolich has authored more than 50 publications in peer-reviewed literature.
