The Department of Statistical Science continuously engages in significant collaborations with other departments and units at Duke, at other universities, in government, and in industry. We wholeheartedly embrace interdisciplinary research and education; they are part of the fabric of our mission.
Some of our interdisciplinary activities manifest as joint, secondary, and affiliated appointments for Statistical Science faculty members. Others take the form of interdisciplinary projects, typically funded by grants with Statistical Science faculty as PIs and co-PIs. Others result from teaching and advising students from other departments and programs whose work naturally intersects with statistical science. Finally, we run a free consulting service for Duke researchers that serves faculty and students from across the campus.
