Stan, Scalable Software for Bayesian Modeling

This award is to design, code, document, test, dissememinate, and maintain Stan, an extensible open-source software framework and compiler for efficient and scalable Bayesian statistical modeling. Stan is an extensible, open-source, cross-platform software framework for developing Bayesian statistical models. The first step in Bayesian modeling is setting up a full probability model for all quantities of interest. Stan facilitates this process by providing an expressive and extensible domain-specific programming language for specifying probabilistic models.

Latent Space Models for Aggregated Relational Data in Social Sciences

How does the understanding of social networks contribute to social science? In particular, (1) which network features or observable characteristics encode social structure; (2) how do these features contribute to the formation of connections or social ties; and (3) how does network structure impacts diffusion, specifically the spread of influences, opinions, and diseases? A key difficulty in studying these questions is that most contributions to current understanding in this area come from a small number of applications where full network data are readily available.

Collaborative Research: Understanding the Connections Between Economics Behaviors

This award funds research in behavioral economics that will analyze the possible relationships between economic behaviors using new data and new modeling methods.
