Biometrics and Statistical Science at Cornell

  • James G. Booth
  • Martin T. Wells


Statistics at Cornell is organized in a distributed model with several groups of statisticians distributed in various departments across the campus. This document mostly focuses on one of these, the Biometrics Unit, but key figures that influenced the discipline in other Cornell statistics groups are also discussed.
