REU Site in Computational Statistics

Complex Data Analysis using Statistical and Machine Learning Tools

MAY 24- JULY 30, 2021

Given the continued uncertainty surrounding resumption of face-to-face campus activities, the program will be run virtually, just like our highly successful program in the Summer of 2020 which included 9 students and 5 mentors.

UNC Greensboro, one of the campuses of the University of North Carolina System, will offer a 10-week REU program from May 24 – July 30, 2021 for 8 nationally recruited undergraduate students from mathematical sciences. The program is funded by an NSF grant DMS-1950549.

The focus of the program will be on Complex Data Analysis using Statistical and Machine Learning Tools. The eight students will be divided into 4-5 research teams of up to 2 students, each headed by a team of faculty Mentors. Students will be able to choose from a wide range of Projects covering topics such as high dimensional data analysis, subdata selection, machine learning, robust data analysis, and data confidentiality.

Emphasis during the training will be on both theory and applications. In addition to focused research on these topics, the program will offer participants a broad professional development training through various workshops and invited lectures. The program will also include plenty of social activities such as weekly virtual working dinners (paid for by the program), and casual conversations on a variety of topics
