Welcome

The Department of Statistics and Data Science at Yale University consists of 8 faculty members, 3 staff, and 28 graduate students. We offer M.A. and Ph.D. programs, as well as an undergraduate major in Statistics.

We have active research programs in statistical information theory, statistical genetics and bioinformatics, bayesian methods, statistical computing, graphical methods, model selection, asymptotics, and other topics. Our faculty and students are also active in collaborative research with other departments throughout the university, including computer science, biological sciences, social sciences, physical sciences, engineering, bioinformatics, economics and applied mathematics.

We occupy the James Dwight Dana House, which is listed as a National Historic Landmark and carries the Landmark Plaque of the New Haven Preservation Trust. In addition to office and classroom spaces, the Dana House is home to a computing laboratory for use by our faculty and students.
