Statistics

My name is Wilson Lin and welcome to my website!

On this website you’ll find articles about statistics and some older articles that I’ve written.

In addition to these articles, I have created several interactive apps using R Shiny.

Basic statistics

  • Conjugate – Bayesian conjugate distributions
  • Distribution explorer – simulates what different probability distributions look like (based on those in-built in R)
  • Outlier – this app tries to identify outliers in time series
  • Test – basic hypothesis test based on Binomial proportion or t-test
  • Difference – hypothesis tests for difference between means

Special projects

  • Bayes – investigate the use of Bayes Theorem for looking into the intentionality behind unusual events
  • NBA Mock Draft Simulator – input in a list and figure out whether you should trade your picks in a H2H points-based fantasy sports league (not limited to the NBA)
  • Socks – an app that uses Approximate Bayesian Computation to try to estimate the solution to Karl Broman’s “Sock Problem”
