Graduate Seminar: Hari Iyer, Statistical Engineering Division, ITL/NIST
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 in the Human Genome, Forensic Statistics, Calibration of Mass Standards, andInter-laboratory Trials. I will briefly explain each of these problem areas, the approach we took towards solving them and what the outcome was. I will also mention some problems that may be good candidates for MS or PhD research.
Refreshments will be served at 3:00pm in the 3rd floor lounge of Hanes Hall.
