Professor Jeff Gill
The Center for Applied Statistics is a sustained research and teaching
unit, formerly the successful Applied Statistics Program. Our main
purposes are: to provide methodological instruction in the social sciences
at all levels and complexities, to support faculty and graduate student
research through computing infrastructure, and to maintain a national and
international profile for statistical research at Washington University.
We serve as a connection for statisticians on campus and as a hub for
academic statistical interactions in the Missouri geographic area.
