PIMS and its partners are committed to connecting the private sector to the expertise in mathematical sciences research at the eight PIMS universities. These bridges are built with industrial problem solving workshops and mathematical modelling in industry workshops. Both apply the latest advances in the mathematical sciences to current, real-world issues in industrial processes. PIMS applies mathematics to topics such as seismic and medical imaging, financial mathematics, and complex fluids through a variety of events, including summer schools, cross-industrial meetings and industrial short courses. PIMS aims to connect academics working in geomathematics to the oil industry, serving as a facilitator and a network of resources. Our main role is the training of highly qualified personnel and the development of the mathematics involved in seismic imaging.
ASDa is the research support and general statistical consulting group of the Department of Statistics at UBC. By applying best practices and capitalizing on our working relationships with leading data science researchers, our professional statistical consultants and scientific programmers can help researchers and industry with a range of data analytics needs. The group can help manage, clean and wrangle data to a form that is ready for analysis; provide analytics through data visualization, exploration, modelling and interpretation, and boost capacity and fill specific gaps in client’s skill sets.
GTDT has made significant contributions to algorithmic game theory, multiagent systems and mechanism design. Research problems attacked by this group are therefore of great importance to e-commerce, auctions and advertising.
Provides a focal point for faculty and graduate students who develop and disseminate methods for data analysis in the health and life sciences. Activities include methodological research, collaborative research, consultation, and support and service to the broader biostatistical community. The group co-operates with related agencies and efforts: clinical trials and health promotion centres, the BC Ministry of Health, the BC Cancer Agency and other clinical research organizations and the Canadian Society for Epidemiology and Biostatistics.
Forest products have a complex variability and, as a biomaterial, are inherently stochastic. Since 2009, FPSMG has studied the properties of wood products, working on projects to develop engineering standards, monitor for changes in product properties over time, subset selection methods for species grouping in the marketing of lumber, and the duration of load effect in construction. The group is made up of statisticians from UBC and SFU, and collaborating scientists at FPInnovations Vancouver, funded by NSERC Collaborative Research and Development Grants.
