Graduate Seminar: Hari Iyer, Statistical Engineering Division, ITL/NIST

March 4, 2015 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Many Flavors of Statistics and Their Applications In this talk I will give an overview of the variety of statistical problems I have encountered, and have worked on, over the years, in the academia, in the industry, and currently, in the government. I hope to touch upon theory, methodology, and applications. Industrial application areas include Condition Monitoring, Supply Chain Modeling, Experimental Design, and Regulatory Conformance. At NIST my areas of involvement include Uncertainty Quantification in Phase Diagrams, Structural Variants Detection…

Graduate Seminar: Amanda Henley, UNC Library Research Hub

March 9, 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

UNC Library Research Hub How can the library help you? Wednesday, March 9, librarians from the Libraries' Research Hubs will give a presentation about the library services and resources most relevant to STOR graduate students. Librarians will demonstrate how to find and cite interesting data, and discuss how Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can be used to generate variables, manipulate data and perform spatial analyses. Citation and reputation management will also be discussed. Please join us and bring your questions.

Graduate Seminar: Sandeep Sarangi, UNC Research Computing

April 20, 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Cluster Computing for Researchers: The use of computing clusters is often essential for method development in Statistics and Operations Research. Today's talk will introduce the different computing options to UNC students and faculty. Topics will be general and include the essential functions and techniques to effectively use the computing clusters here at UNC. The information covered will be of use to people in all stages of research; from first years who will soon be starting research, to fifth years who…

Graduate Seminar – Kai Zhang

October 26, 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Kai Zhang Statistics and Operations Research UNC-Chapel Hill BET on Independence We study the problem of model-free dependence detection. This problem can be difficult even when the marginal distributions are known. We explain this difficulty by showing the impossibility to uniformly consistently distinguish degeneracy from independence with any single test. To make model-free dependence detection a tractable problem, we introduce the concept of binary expansion statistics (BEStat) and propose the binary expansion testing (BET) framework. Through simple mathematics, we convert…
