Understanding the World through Statistics

Statistics is the science of data: measuring and assessing uncertainty and more generally, learning from data. Since scientific, technical, and social disciplines all need to make conclusions based on data, statistics provides them with tools essential for their advances. From player stats to computer models to simulate the effects of climate change statistics play a key role.

Dr. Ana Kupresanin received her PhD in Mathematical Statistics from Arizona State University. She joined LLNL's Applied Statistics group in 2009 after spending several years as a faculty member teaching mathematics and statistics.
