Research Discussion Groups
The Department of Statistics has several research discussion groups that bring together small groups on
a regular basis to discuss particular topics of interest to our faculty and graduate students in Statistics and other disciplines.
These groups provide a forum for younger graduate students to learn about current research interests of our faculty and
discover potential topics for dissertation research.
