Carnegie Mellon University


The department is home to cutting-edge research programs that tackle a wide range of problems.

Our faculty and students are advancing the frontier in Statistics and other fields with a combination of theoretical, methodological, and applied work. A core part of our research mission is building strong interdisciplinary collaborations with scientists and other researchers. Our faculty and students work "in the trenches" in other fields -- genetics, neuroscience, cosmology, demography, epidemiology, finance, forensics, and many more -- to address significant scientific questions while developing new statistical theory and methods.
