REU Site in Computational Statistics

May 23-July 29, 2022

Complex Data Analysis Using Statistical and Machine Learning Tools

To be held virtually

UNC Greensboro, one of the campuses of the University of North Carolina System, will offer a 10-week REU program from May 23 – July 29, 2022 for 9 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 lunches and occasional dinners (paid for by the program), and casual conversations on a variety of topics.
