Dr. Sara Algeri
University of Minnesota
Sara's research interests mainly lie in astrostatistics, computational statistics, and statistical inference. The main purpose of her work is to provide highly generalizable statistical solutions that directly address fundamental questions in the physical sciences, and can at the same time be easily applied to any other scientific problem following a similar statistical paradigm. In line with this, motivated by problems arising in high energy physics and astronomy, her current research focuses on statistical inference for signal detection, background estimation, and uncertainty quantification.
