Darcie Delzell

Darcie Delzell, Ph.D.

Professor of Mathematics

On Faculty since 2009
Science 167

My interest in statistical analysis stems from my longtime enjoyment of and interest in mathematics, computation, and biology. Data science and statistical analysis allows me to model phenomena in many fields using traditional and rapidly emerging statistical theory and computational tools. I enjoy collaborating with scientists and investigators across many disciplines; we are able to plan experiments and analyze data in a way that helps to answer important research questions and inform decision-making.
