Students Statistics and Probability Seminar

In the beginning of the fall semester of 2007, Athreya Dwijavanti (Avanti), Kim Hyejin, Sur Ritaja and I, began a graduate student Statistics and Probability seminar. The purpose of the seminar is to bring together graduate students at the University of Maryland who work on areas related to statistics and probability. Graduate students can practice their presentation skills and learn more about the research of their fellow graduate students. We would like to point out that any topic is appropriate for presentation as long as it is related to statistics or probability. Junior graduate students that are interested in statistics, probability, economics or finance are particular encouraged to contribute a presentation on any topic they like (for example it could be something research related, their undergraduate thesis, an interesting problem thay have solved, an interesting paper they have read, e.t.c.).

The seminar usually meets on Wednesdays at 3:30-4:30 pm in MATH 1313. Please check the weakly seminar schedule at for possible changes and updates. If you are interested in giving a presentation, please send an email to the organizers.
