The SIAM student chapters of Colorado are hosting their 18th annual regional student conference on applied mathematics for all schools along the Front Range. This event will allow students from different universities in the area to see what is being done in this field and promote interest in applied mathematics in general. This event is open to both undergraduates and graduate students.

Poster and Program

All speakers and conference attendees should fill out a short registration form so we can email you the zoom links and keep you updated on any changes.

Location

This will be a hybrid conference. Student speakers and attendees may attend in person on the CU Denver Auraria campus or via zoom.

2022 SIAM Conference Keynote Speaker

Speaker

Professor Audrey Hendricks

Title

"Statistics in the News: How statistical thinking can help us be better consumers of the numbers, data, and statistics all around us"

Abstract

New statistics and machine learning models hold broad excitement in many areas including personalized medicine, targeted advertising, self- driving cars, and farming. Indeed, businesses now tout AI divisions in advertising campaigns. But as can often happen with new, exciting technology, missteps have occurred. Here, I show how a focus on foundational statistics principles can help experts and the general public alike be more informed and critical consumers of statistics (and AI) in the news, journal articles, and our everyday life.

About the Speaker

Audrey Hendricks is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematical and Statistical sciences with secondary appointments in Biostatistics & Informatics, the Colorado Center for Personalized Medicine, and the Human Medical Genetics and Genomics Program. She is passionate about data science literacy for all and removing barriers to learning. Dr. Hendricks’s research focuses on collaborative applied projects and statistical method development to better understand the complex nature of human diseases and traits. Recently, this includes studies to elucidate biological mechanisms behind the relationship between food and health as well as the development of methods and user-friendly software to increase the utility and equity of publicly available genetic data, especially for diverse populations. She is proud to mentor many amazing undergraduate and graduate students working on statistical challenges in human genetics and genomics.
