Clemson hosted several significant lectures in Mathematical Sciences last year, including the following.

As part of Clemson’s NSF NRT Distinguished Speaker Series, Professor David Higdon of the Social Decision Analytics Laboratory at the Biocomplexity Institute of Virginia Tech spoke in November on “A Small, Biased Sample of Experiences Involving Statistical Inference, Computational Modeling, and Big Data.” Prior to joining Va Tech, he was the group leader of the Statistical Sciences Group at Los Alamos National Laboratory. He also is currently a Co-Editor-In-Chief of the SIAM/ASA Journal on Uncertainty Quantification.
