\(Stats Chats\) is an informal weekly gathering to discuss any quantitative questions you may have related to your research.

  • Who? Anyone who wants to join in and attempt to improve their quantitative skills, or share their knowledge and experience. Faculty are more than welcome to join us (in any capacity)!
  • What? Topics we have in mind include questions about Statistics, Experimental Design, Model Simulation & Analysis, Debugging R code, etc. Anything you can reasonably describe as quantitative is fair game! Please plan on focusing on a single, well formed question (or two) so we can make good use of the hour. Occasionally we will host informational sessions on a range of topics, which will be listed on this website! Let us know if you have any ideas for topics!
  • When? Thursdays from 10am-11am
  • Where Orvis Building rm 101
