Our seminar series generally consists of three categories of talks: statistical methodology, didactic, and data and social impact seminars. The statistical methodology talks cover new advances in methods for analyzing data, and may be more technical. Didactic seminars provide an opportunity to learn a new area of statistics or way of analyzing data. Data and social impact lectures take a critical look at how we can use data to learn about and provide recommendations for solutions to social problems through quantitative research. These talks vary in technical level.
