Quant Club

Our Mission 

Quant Club was established in 2020 with the goal of creating a space for graduate students to discuss statistics and methodology, hear from experts, and foster collaboration among graduate students. By fostering this collaboration, we hope to increase the accessibility of quantitative methods and help each other build confidence in diverse methodologies. This inclusive group is run by graduate students and is a space where students of varying comfort levels and experience with quantitative methods are welcome. All you need is interest, curiosity, and a willingness to learn. 

Meetings for the 2021-2022 academic year are held on the first Friday of each month from 10:00-11:00AM and will include topics such as:

  • A Two-Part Series on Network Analysis presented by Eric Phillips, Shaina Kumar, and Madi Edwards
      • Part 1: Introduction to Network Analysis will be held February 4th, 2022
      • Part 2: Application of Network Analysis will be held March 4th, 2022
  • A guest appearance by the Quantitude podcast hosts Patrick Curran and Greg Hancock TBD!
  • Data blitz: several folks will share a recent project that used a cool data technique, a new stats-related area that they are excited about, or even something new data-wise that was learned in a course. Presentations last about 5 minutes, with a few minutes after for questions/discussion.
