We’re a group of graduate students from Iowa State University, with underlying interests in solving some cool data science problems.
We meet weekly on Fridays, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm at Coover, 2222, to discuss varied problems in the intersection of our research areas (check the Research tab for more info). Occasionally, we enjoy active brainstorming sessions over cups of medium roast coffee.
You can find all material related to our seminars, including slides and references in the List of Talks tab.
