Department of Statistics
The Department of Statistics, which is located in the University’s Fox School of Business and Management, has 14 full-time graduate faculty members and about forty graduate students in its Master’s and Ph.D. programs. Many of these students pursue their studies part-time. The Department’s graduate programs provide broad training in statistics and biostatistics, and many of our students gain research experience by means of the many internship opportunities, which are available locally.
The Department of Statistics offers a minor program for the honor students of the Fox School of Business and Management. The intent of the Statistics Minor is to complement any major in the FSBM with a quantitative training based on statistical computing technology.
In addition to training its own graduate students, the Department offers numerous courses to graduate and undergraduate students in business. In addition to teaching, the faculty is engaged in a variety of scholarly activities, including publication of journal articles and books, attendance at professional meetings, and statistical consulting.
Research interests among the faculty include Biostatistics, Bayesian/Empirical Bayesian Statistics, Casual Inference, Data Mining, Experimental Design, Genetics, High Dimensional Statistics, Law, Marketing, Micro Arrays, Multiple Hypothesis Testing, Statistical Decision Theory, Statistical Applications in Finance, Statistical Computing and Graphics, Time Series Analysis.
