The Institute for Foundations of Data Science (IFDS), in an expanded partnership with the University of Washington, the University of California Santa Cruz and the University of Chicago, has been awarded a five-year $12.5 million grant from the NSF TRIPODS program, one of only two institutes nationwide to receive Phase II funding. Several Math faculty are affiliated with the IFDS, which fosters interdisciplinary collaboration in data science through weekly informal meetings, special interest groups, workshops and summer schools. The IFDS also supports a number of Math graduate students who benefit from mentoring by faculty outside the department. Sebastien Roch, co-PI on the grant, serves on the institute’s executive committee.
