Geography Department Research Seminar Drones in the Environmental Sciences Dr Neil Entwistle (School of Environment and Life Sciences, University of Salford) Chaired by Jonny Huck Abstract: Drones, or small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (sUAV) have quickly been adopted by the scientific community, in this talk you'll hear how the newest of rem..
This one-day course begins with a description of some examples where multilevel models are useful in statistical analysis and some examples of multilevel populations. We then cover the basic theory of multilevel models including random intercept and random slope specifications, the use of contextual variables in multilevel analysis and modelli..
The Collaboratory for Urban Resilience and Energy (CURE) at the Manchester Urban Institute is hosting the Greater Manchester Green Summit Pre-workshop on ‘building a zero carbon city-region’. We will map out the key challenges and barriers for buildings and the built environment. Then we explore the opportunities and pathways, with key me..

Structural Equation Models (SEM) amalgamate regression analysis, path/mediation analysis and factor analysis, allowing for more richly detailed statistical models to be specified and compared to data than by using these techniques individually. Historically, SEM models were confined to the analysis of continuous observed data, limiting their u..
This course will show participants how to use statistical analysis software, in this instance SPSS. In the course, participants will be introduced to the SPSS environment as well as useful key concepts (such as cases, variables, values, and levels of measurement) to perform basic descriptive data analysis. A key component of the course involve..
The University of Manchester's Devo Manc hub is hosting a one day conference on Inclusive Devolved Futures. The conference will bring together academics, activists, consultants, executives, lobbyists, politicians, researchers, and think tankers to discuss what an inclusive devolved future for Greater Manchester might look like and how it migh..
Geography Department Research Seminar : Dr Maria Rusca (Department of Geography, King's College London)
Geography Department Research Seminar Materialising critical water studies Dr Maria Rusca (Department of Geography, King's College London) Chaired by Ali Browne Abstract: TBC
The course covers basic concepts in longitudinal design and analysis. The morning session focuses on the strengths and methodological difficulties of the longitudinal approach such as defining longitudinal populations and target samples; levels and dimensions of change; age, period and cohort effects. There will be one small group discussion...
The course covers two of the most useful ways of analysing longitudinal data. In the morning we cover growth curve analysis within a multilevel modelling framework. The theoretical ideas are embellished with practical work using data from the National Child Development Study. After lunch, basic concepts in survival analysis and event history a..
