2020 William Guy Lecture: Dr Laura Bonnett
Named in honour of William Augustus Guy, an early medical statistician and past RSS president, this prestigious volunteer role recognises fellows with a successful track record in undertaking school outreach activities.
Over 2020, Laura will be delivering lectures to statisticians and students across the UK on the topic of ‘Driving is a risky business!’ which covers various aspects of road safety where statistics can illuminate people’s decisions.
The lecture will include a discussion regarding conditional probabilities, together with ethical considerations, which will appeal across the curricula.
