Dr James Matis, Visiting Professor at the University of Damascus, and Professor Emeritus, Department of Statistics, Texas A&M University, USA, visited ICARDA last month. He presented two seminars: a technical lecture entitled Analyzing aphid population data using a mechanistic model, and a more general seminar on logistic regression and its application in agricultural research. Dr Matis also met with senior scientists and management, to identify opportunities to expand collaboration between ICARDA, Texas A&M, and the University of Damascus. One key area is joint supervision of graduate statistics students from the University of Damascus.
