Kernel Klub

The Kernel Klub exemplifies the Applied Mathematics and Statistics department’s commitment to interdisciplinary research and education at the interface of computational/applied mathematics, statistics, data science, and machine learning. Established in Fall 2018 with the arrival of Professor Doug Nychka, it evolved from a weekly study group into a vibrant research seminar. 
The Kernel Klub meets every Wednesday from 12-1pm, with presentations by faculty, students, or guests on topics related to kernel methods, spatial statistics, and applications at the intersection of these fields. Each seminar features an engaging discussion and Q&A session in order to foster a collaborative exchange of ideas. See below for a schedule and speakers.
Beyond academics, the Kernel Klub also hosts social activities like hiking trips and BBQs for students and faculty.
