Galen Vincent

Graduate Student – M.S. Statistics
Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics
Colorado School of Mines


My name is Galen, and I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in statistics at CSM. I grew up in Tucson, Arizona before moving to Golden in 2015 to begin my education at Mines. I graduated with a BS in Engineering Physics in May 2019 and immediately began working towards an MS in statistics, which I plan to complete in May 2020. Upon completion of my master’s degree, I hope to enroll in a PhD program to study statistics and its applications to the physical sciences. In my free time, I enjoy rock climbing, running, skiing, and enjoying all that the wonderful state of Colorado has to offer.
