## Statistics and Data Science

Statistics is the science of data. Estimation facilitates learning from data. Quantifying, controlling and describing uncertainty provides a basis for inference, modeling and decision making that is central to all theoretical and applied sciences.

Quantitative analysis and statistical reasoning have become ubiquitous, and the prevalence of "big data" is rapidly changing the way we study and view our world. CAM's statistics research programs span from mathematical statistics, computational statistics, and machine learning to the development of statistical methods for astrophysics, ecology, economics, emergency medical services, financial modeling, genomics, high dimensional and functional data, neurobiology, risk management and spatio-temporal data.
