Matrix Population Model
Use matrix population model to estimate the variability and long-term growth of specific species
With this model, we can obtain long-term growth rate to make future decision about species and this can be used not only in statistics department but also in ecology department.
Project Profile Body
With the given data set, we bootstrap and simulate to get the long-term growth rate (with confidence interval).
Anticipated Academic Outcome
Potential publication, presenting about this research in spring research conference.
This project requires not only statistical knowledge but also mathematical skills. As a double major student (Math/Stat) I’m perfectly qualified for this research.
By end of this winter, we can use basic model of matrix population model to obtain statistical information from our data set. In the following semester, we focus on complicated model that we didn’t deal with currently.
