As part of a Data+ project this summer, Anne Driscoll, a Duke junior, and Austin Ferguson, recent graduate, mined datasets from Scholars@Duke and PubMed to see if they could find a way to measure interdepartmental collaboration among faculty at Duke.
Ingrid Daubechies, professor of mathematics and electrical and computer engineering—and iiD faculty member—received the Math + X Investigator award from the Simons Foundation to encourage novel collaborations between mathematicians and researchers in another field of science or engineering. Learn about the work she's been doing recently.
Motivated by Robert O. Keohane Professor of Sociology and mentor Jim Moody’s work on health and networks, rising sophomore Molly Chen and rising junior Emily Wu spent their summer on a Data+ project with supervising postdoc Laura Sheble building an interactive web-based tool to help better diagnose patients.
Sponsored by the National Geographic Society/Waitt Grants Program and Duke’s Bass Connections, a team of Duke scholars and students spent this summer at two historic sites in Italy. They used drones, virtual reality 3D modeling, and other high-tech tools during the project and made some significant discoveries.
Students and researchers are taking tours of the excavation of Catalhoyuk, Turkey—the largest and best-preserved Neolithic site ever discovered—without ever stepping foot off campus.
One of our Data+ teams spent the summer examining data related to Durham County. Learn how undergraduates Anna Vivian and Vinai Oddiraju, under the guidance of mentor Olga Kozlova, a PhD candidate in economics, focused their work on ambient stress and neighborhood change.
More than 85 people from across the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. who met at Duke University June 13-17 for a five-day problem-solving workshop for mathematicians, scientists, and engineers from industry and academia.
See what some of our Data+ students were up to this summer.
Maria DeYoreo, postdoctoral associate in the Department of Statistical Science at Duke, received the 2016 Savage Award in Applied Methodology. This prestigious award is given for the best dissertation in Bayesian statistical methods. Maria is working with Jerry Reiter, professor of statistical science and deputy director of iiD.
Julia Tuttle won the Duke Center for Interdisciplinary Studies in Science and Cultural Theory's 2016 Best Undergraduate Science Studies Senior Thesis for her project ""Drug Development for Neglected Tropical Diseases: DNDi and the Product Development Partnership (PDP) Model." The thesis resulted from her work with the Bass Connections Innovation & Technology Polic
