Colin Rundel

Assistant Professor of the Practice


Colin Rundel is an Assistant Professor of the Practice in the Department of Statistical Science at Duke University. He received his Ph.D. in Statistics from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a B.S. in Biology from the California Institute of Technology. Dr. Rundel's research interests include spatial and computational statistics with an emphasis on applied biological and ecological problems. Recent work has included modeling the migratory pathways of North American songbirds, large scale fusion models of air pollution, and models for the detection of landmines and IEDs through the integration of multiple sensors. He is also interested in improving computational pedagogy within the statistics curriculum - with a particular focus on training statisticians to produce high quality, reproducible software products as a natural byproduct of the analysis workflow.
