Abstract: Statistics has demonstrated it is escalating significance in the data-centric era, manifesting itself as both a specialized academic discipline and an interdisciplinary field. In this presentation, I aim to provide a birds-eye overview of Bayesian statistics and shed light on its recent advancements. I will then delve into two specific statistical applications that have occupied my attention over the past few years: financial econometrics and empirical psychology. Throughout the discussion, I will recount my personal experiences collaborating with psychologists and financial econometricians as a statistician, emphasizing the invaluable insights gained from these interactions.
