Statistical Methodology Research at the National Center for Forensic Science (NCFS) is focused on forensic error rate assessment, high dimensional data analysis, cluster analysis, and item response theory. We work with the forensic science community to define the practical applications of our research.  We often collaborate with other research groups, agencies, and working groups.

We recognize that future developments are highly dependent on an increased understanding of fundamental aspects of statistical methodologies, resulting in some fundamental investigations of an academic nature.
