Opportunities for student research abound in the Statistics department. Students can apply for paid research assistant positions and qualified students can complete honors projects. For more information about becoming a research assistant, talk to your favorite statistics professor. (If you are interested in doing research over the summer, you should approach your professor by early January). For more information on the honors program, visit the Academic Program page and see the list of recent honors projects.
Below is a list of recent research projects involving students. Some honors projects qualify as independent research and are included here (marked with *); others are listed on the honors project page. If available, the name of the project is linked to the final paper. All copyrights are held by the authors or publishers; the papers are posted here with permission. For honors projects, the first faculty member listed is the primary supervisor. For other papers, faculty supervisors and non-Colby affiliated authors are listed according to the convention of the discipline (often alphabetical).
