BAYESIAN ESTIMATION OF FLEXIBLE SPATIAL MODELS WITH APPLICATIONS IN MEDICAL IMAGING AND ECONOMIC MODELING

Grant number: DP0452777

Abstract

This project aims to develop statistical methodology for estimating flexible highly parameterised Bayesian spatial models. The flexible models examined will include regression, choice and time series models for data that is spatially registered. Spatial smoothing of parameters in the models will involve application of hierarchical spatial prior distributions. The resulting methodology will be applied to the analysis of medical imaging data and to the estimation of spatial econometric models of residential real estate prices. The expected outcomes include developments in the frontier framework of Bayesian computational estimation methodology, improved methods for medical image processing and ..
