Fellows

QTM hosts a rich variety of visiting faculty and pre-doctoral students from around the world during the academic year and during the summer. These visiting faculty and pre-doctoral students engage in research, collaborate with Emory faculty on papers and other written material, deliver lectures, and participate in the Institute's many workshops, speakers series, and conferences, with the purpose of promoting quantitative literacy in all fields at Emory University.

Additionally, each year the Institute hosts a small number of undergraduate fellows who are active participants in the university's vital research environment.
