Reed Forestry Data Science Faculty Lecture

Monday, January 11, 2021 at 4:00 PM until 5:00 PMPacific Standard Time

Join statistics professor Kelly McConville and students Olek Wojcik '21 and Isabelle Caldwell '23 for a unique opportunity to learn and ask questions about research opportunities in the liberal arts. Since 2008, Kelly has been collaborating with the US Forest Inventory and Analysis Program on a wide range of research projects related to monitoring status and trends in forested ecosystems across the US. In true Team Science fashion, these projects have involved ecologists, foresters, analysts, statisticians, undergraduates, and one statistics graduate student turned liberal arts statistics professor. In this talk, Kelly will share some of that work with you, as well as her reflections on the role of a liberal arts statistics professor in collaborative research projects. Sharing from the student perspective, Olek and Issabelle will talk about their forestry data science projects from the summer and will be ready to answer questions about their experiences doing undergraduate research at Reed. This talk will be accessible to all students interested in data and will provide some concrete examples of what it means “to do statistics research."
