Affiliate Members of the GIDP in Statistics are those with a general interest in statistical issues who wish to be fully informed of the Program’s operation, and who wish to engage in a limited subset of Program activities. Affiliate members often rotate to Regular status at pertinent intervals, and vice versa.
- Ronald L. Breiger, Ph.D. Professor of Sociology. Statistical models for social network analysis; Log-linear models; Log-multiplicative models for contingency tables.
- Emily A. Butler, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Family and Consumer Sciences. Multivariate time-series analysis; Multilevel modeling; Dyadic models; Social-relations modeling.
- Robert Canales, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Public Health (Stanford University) Data mining, machine learning, analysis of complex systems; Application of Monte Carlo simulation and stochastic processes in risk analysis and environmental exposure assessment; Sensitivity analysis; Uncertainty and variability quantification
- Andrew C. Comrie, Ph.D. Professor of Geography & Regional Development; Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost. Statistics of climate data; Data reduction; Spatial modeling.
- Gautam Gowrisankaran, Ph.D. Professor of Economics. Structural econometric modeling; Applied Bayesian econometrics; Estimation of dynamic models.
- Hidehiko Ichimura, Professor of Economics. His research focuses on uses of influence function of estimators for a finite dimensional parameter in semiparametric models. In addition, he is working on constructing an econometric framework to link structural life-cycle models to the national transfer accounts via an over-lapping generations model.

- Joanna Monti-Masel, D.Phil. Associate Professor of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology. Stochastic processes; Bayesian learning models; Theoretical population genetics; Stochasticity in gene expression.
- David M. Meko, Ph.D. Associate Research Professor of Dendrochronology. Spectral analysis; ARMA modeling; Time series filtering; Regression.
- James L. Powell, Professor of Economics, Eller College of Management. His current research focus is on limited dependent variables, endogenous regressors and panel data.
- Chris Segrin, Ph.D. Professor of Communication; Professor of Psychology; Professor of Family Studies; Head, Department of Communication. Meta-analysis; Longitudinal data analysis; Regression analysis; Dyadic data analysis.
