Join us for our first faculty presentation of the semester on Thursday, November 9, at 1 p.m.! Dr. Gregory Smith, Associate Professor of Chemistry, will present on the following topic:

Scientific Modeling and Strategies for Evaluation

We all use models to inform our decision making, both in our personal interactions and at the societal level. Models are heavily used in science, but what makes a model scientific? Scientific models vary widely in fundamental approach, sophistication, assumptions, purpose, predictive power, and falsifiability. Since it's unreasonable to develop expertise in each type of modeling, what are some simple questions we can ask to gauge the reliability and applicability of models?

This talk explores types of scientific models, including examples from my own research, and attempts to give a framework for evaluating the results of those models. How much credence should you give to a model prediction? Could we roughly rank different approaches to modeling in terms of reliability? What type of systems are more amenable to modeling than others?

Food and beverages will be provided. This program is sponsored by the Friends of Doherty Library, and is free and open to the public.

We hope to see you there!
