Accessibility of HTML pages from R Markdown

http://www.ikosmidis.com/post/blogaccessibility/
Accessibility Over the years, I faced situations where I needed to make content (lecture notes, manuscripts, consultancy reports, etc.) as accessible as possible to effectively communicate with colleagues, clients, and students with particular accessibility requirements.
All those “accessibility encounters” of mine left me with a pile of unstructured notes and advice to my self to which I often refer. Well, I decided to blog about parts of it in case anyone else finds it useful.

brquasi: Improved quasilikelihood estimation
http://www.ikosmidis.com/post/newsbrquasierum2020/
Wed, 10 Jun 2020 00:00:00 +0000
http://www.ikosmidis.com/post/newsbrquasierum2020/
On 19 June 2020, I will be giving a talk at the eRum2020 conference titled “brquasi: Improved quasilikelihood estimation”. The talk is about the brquasi R package, which provides a glm method for improving bias in quasi likelihood estimation.
That package is a spinoff of theoretical work with Nicola Lunardon on methods for reducedbias Mestimation in general that require neither resampling (like the bootstrap does) nor full knowledge of the underlying distribution of the data (like other higherorder asymptotic methods do).

detectseparation R package is on CRAN
http://www.ikosmidis.com/post/newsdetectseparationmarch2020/
Thu, 26 Mar 2020 00:00:00 +0000
http://www.ikosmidis.com/post/newsdetectseparationmarch2020/
detectseparation provides prefit and postfit methods for detecting separation and infinite maximum likelihood estimates in generalized linear models with categorical responses.
Prefit methods The prefit methods apply on binomialresponse generalized liner models such as logit, probit and cloglog regression, and can be directly supplied as fitting methods to the glm() function. They solve the linear programming problems for the detection of separation developed in Konis (2007), using ROI or lpSolveAPI.

Making sense of CRAN: Package and collaboration networks

On 12 July 2019, I will be giving a talk at the useR! 2019 conference titled “Making sense of CRAN: Package and collaboration networks”. The talk is about what my cranly R package can do and how it can help users and developers understand CRAN better and the position of their (intended) packages within it.

A workflow that most probably isn’t yours
http://www.ikosmidis.com/post/blogworkflows/
Tue, 18 Jun 2019 00:00:00 +0000
http://www.ikosmidis.com/post/blogworkflows/
In early 2019, I was invited to give a talk at the Young Researcher’s Meetings of the Department of Statistics at University of Warwick (the place I work). The Young Researchers’ meeting is a weekly seminar for postgraduate students and postdocs to discuss research and exchange ideas.
My immediate thought was to talk about one of my current and exciting research projects. Of course, I know from experience that the talks I have given on research projects I am excited about are not necessarily equally exciting for the audience.

🏃♀️🚴♂️🏊♀️
The first version of our trackeRapp R package is out!
trackeRapp provides the first fully interactive data analysis workflow for your runs, rides and swims! It is completely open source and written in R. Its backend is based on the trackeR R package and the frontend has been developed using the shiny R package.
To launch the trackeRapp interface locally, launch R and then
install.packages("trackeRapp") trackeRapp::trackeRapp() Then, hit “Load” and “Upload sample data set” to see what {trackeRapp} can do!

The package vignette provides a quick tour on its functionality. More detailed descriptions of the package and its methods, and realdata demonstrations of the package functionality can be found here, which is an updated version of

An R recursion to compute Bartlett relations
http://www.ikosmidis.com/post/blogbartlett/
Sun, 09 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0000
http://www.ikosmidis.com/post/blogbartlett/
It is one of those times that I am really excited and somewhat obsessed with the current research project I am working on. It is an old idea that after many years going around my head, it seems to be coming close to fruition. This is not the reason I am writing though.
Part of that research project involves heavy usage of the Bartlett relations (or Bartlett identities). The Bartlett relations (see Bartlett 1953, Section 2) are at the core of much of statistical theory and practice.

My logo is a bivariate density

http://www.ikosmidis.com/post/bloglogo/
My logo in GitHub (see here) is the contours of the density function of a mixture of bivariate normal distributions (see Figure 1). The idea came to me when I was working on the paper
Kosmidis I and Karlis D (2016). Modelbased clustering using copulas with applications. Statistics and Computing, 26, 1079–1099 DOI ArXiV In that paper, amongst several other things, we introduce the use of rotations of the components of mixtures of copulas to define extremely flexible mixture models.

Thu, 25 May 2017 00:00:00 +0000
http://www.ikosmidis.com/post/newsbrglm2/

enrichwith provides the “enrich” method (verb) to enrich listlike R objects with new, relevant components. The current version can enrich objects of class ‘family’, ‘linkglm’, ‘lm’ and ‘glm’. The package also provides the ‘enriched_glm’ function that results in objects that carry various useful methods for generalized linear models (simulate, observed and expected information matrix, and model densities, probabilities, and quantiles at arbitrary parameter values). See the package vignettes and the enrichwith GitHub page for more details.

Interests My core research interests are in the theory and methodology of statistical learning and inference, and, in particular, in penalized and pseudolikelihood theory and methods, statistical computing and algorithms for regression problems and methods for clustering.
I also engage in interdisciplinary applied work of the kind that involves a real synthesis of approaches and has the potential to generate new advances in statistical learning and inference with broader impact.
