Major Description

The title of my major is “Computational Biostatistics.” Biostatistics is a a field that implements methods in research on various biological fields to ensure the accuracy and to drive results in experiments. A portion of this work is also to help analyze and interpret these results. Using statistics tools and software, a professional would be able to answer specific questions about public health, epistemology, medicine, and other topics. These data-driven solutions require much niche background and knowledge. One purpose of this major is to acquire such knowledge.

The computational part of the major stems from the mathematical background in order to understand and utilize statistic tools. As much of these methods used in statistics are based on straight-forward and direct calculations, much of my studies is directed towards the arithmetic/applications rather than theory.
