Seed grants from the Transdisciplinary Institute in Applied Data Sciences (TRIADS) will support 10 new projects helmed by Washington University faculty members, harnessing cutting-edge tools to tackle critical societal questions.
Robert Wexler, assistant professor, Robert Lunde, assistant professor, and Betsy Sinclair, professor, were recently selected as TRIADS Seed Grant recipients. Their Seed Grant project, titled "Conformal Prediction for Uncertainty Quantification in Emerging Application Areas, from Materials to Social Science," will explore the uncertainty quantification for complex phenomena in the chemical and social sciences.
TRIADS has announced more than $480,000 in seed grant funding to 10 interdisciplinary teams whose members represent 12 different WashU departments and schools. Teams will use funding to carry out preliminary research. Teams can use the results to apply for external funding and progress through the additional steps toward publishing high-impact research. These 10 interdisciplinary teams of Washington University faculty will help lead our university's efforts to harness data science in addressing pressing societal issues.
