Are you more than just a number? Evaluating population research: from science to policy

Dr John Matthewson:
From medical trials to conservation efforts to psychological research, scientific findings are often based upon populations of individuals. In turn, these findings can be used to implement decisions with wide-ranging and significant effects, such as public health interventions, social policies, and your insurance premiums.

Philosopher Dr John Matthewson outlines key properties of the various kinds of populations used across the natural and social sciences, and shows how these properties affect whether a particular grouping should be used to underwrite particular applications. Moving through philosophical analysis to scientific methodology, the talk ultimately considers practical outcomes for individuals and groups targeted in research.

Doors open at 6pm.
