"In the end, data are interconnected in one way or another."

Between different observation times of the same subject and across different subjects—data are interconnected in one way or another. In the era of big data, it is crucial to extract useful and correct information out of them. Rho’s research focuses on how to handle the dependency using statistical and probabilistic tools.

Who you'll work with

You’ll work in teams with your peers and faculty, using popular, state-of-the-art software to solve authentic problems with real data to impact society. Nearly 40 faculty members in the Department of Mathematical Sciences conduct research on the best mathematical and statistical approaches to problems in a variety of areas. Both master’s and doctoral students contribute to faculty-led research projects while taking advanced coursework in statistics.
