Jeff Gill. Professor, Washington University. (BA UCLA, MBA Georgetown, Ph.D. American University, Post-Doc Harvard). Major areas of research and interest are [Methodology and Statistics] Bayesian approaches, Markov chain Monte Carlo, queueing theory, nonparametrics, missing data, generalized linear model theory, model selection, circular data, and general problems in statistical computing; [Epidemiology] mental health outcomes for children exposed to war, foot-and-mouth disease, containment policy,and measurement/data issues; [Medicine] pediatric traumatic brain injury, linkages between obesity and cancer (including human energetics and mouse models), models of Warfarin dosage, psychiatric trauma, physiological effects of stress; [Political Science] voting, terrorism, Scottish politics, expert elicitation, bureaucracy. He is the author of "Essential Mathematics for Political and Social Research," with Cambridge University Press. and is the author of five other books including the forthcoming second edition of "Bayesian Methods for the Social and Behavioral Sciences"(Chapman & Hall/CRC), which is the leading Bayesian text for these disciplines. His journal work has appeared in the Lancet-Neurology, Journal of Politics, Electoral Studies, Statistical Science, Political Research Quarterly, Quarterly Journal of Political Science, Sociological Methods and Research, Public Administration Review, Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory, Annals of Statistics, JASA, Journal of Statistical Software, Political Analysis, and elsewhere.
