On Tuesday, May 31, students completing their one-quarter research projects in the Program in Quantitative Social Science (QSS) had their poster session. In Spring 2022, the QSS one-quarter research project course was taught by Visiting Professor Robert Cooper. Professor Cooper supervised 11 research projects.
The QSS one-quarter project poster session provides a venue for the public presentation of capstone research projects carried out by graduating QSS students. These projects represent independent research efforts implemented under professorial guidance, and the posters QSS seniors presented in May 2022 summarize, visualize, and communicate the findings of their quantitative research endeavors.
This May, QSS one-quarter research project had subjects ranging from the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on home values in the Rocky Mountains, the effect of COVID-19 shutdowns in California (an "anthropause") on bird traveling patterns, racial disparities in healthcare, and the conditions on which managers of firms are willing to accept lower offering prices in initial public offerings.
