SAESS is a working research group in the Department of Biostatistics in Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. We are an interdisciplinary group comprising of faculty, post doctoral fellows and graduate students from several departments. We have regular meetings featuring presentations and discussions related to small area estimation, spatial and spatio-temporal statistics.
