The capstone experience is a hands-on thesis project that entails an in-depth study of a current problem in data science. Students will synthesize their knowledge of probability and statistics, machine learning, and data and computational science. A faculty member from one of the four core DSI departments (Applied Mathematics, Biostatistics, Computer Science, Mathematics) will oversee the capstone course. Students may collaborate with an additional faculty member, postdoc, or industry partner on projects. DATA 1010 and DATA 1030 are recommended pre-requisites.
