Public Lecture Series

Public Lecture Series Video Archive

Our faculty and students work on statistical methodology, a subject that spans mathematics, philosophy, and computing, and impacts many areas of science, engineering, and business. Our department is also heavily involved in interdisciplinary research, where we work closely with scientists in fields like biology, astronomy, climate science, and social science. The purpose of this Department of Statistics public lecture series is to share our diverse research and statistical insights with as broad an audience as possible. This is particularly critical now given the enormous importance of statistics and data science to society.
