Center for Statistics and Applications in Forensic Evidence (CSAFE) provides several students with opportunities in research
Several statistics and data science students – including first-year honors students – are currently participating in research projects in the Center for Statistics and Applications in Forensic Evidence (CSAFE). Emily Allen (Statistics), Tyler Christians (Data Science), Caroly Coronado-Vargas (Statistics), Tracie-Lynn Lamoreux (Statistics), Craig Orman (Data Science), Aditi Pokharkar (Economics and Data Science), Nathan Rethwisch (Statistics and Data Science) and Ashlan Simpson (Statistics) are learning by doing, and get to see statistics in action. Students gain expertise in data collection, database management, visualization and exploratory analyses, and of course, various flavors of statistical analyses. By working side-by-side with CSAFE graduate students, these undergraduate researchers also learn about graduate school and about the many doors that a degree in statistics (at any level!) will open. Emily Allen and Ashland Simpson’s early research experiences are made possible, in part, by the Ronald J. and S. Doré Mead Fund for Student Experience in Statistics.
