LISA is the University of Colorado Boulder’s Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis (LISA). LISA is a statistical collaboration laboratory with a goal to increase the quantity and quality of statistics and data science applied to advance high-impact research at CU Boulder and expert decision making in the community.
LISA’s mission is to:
LISA trains statisticians and data scientists to communicate and collaborate with researchers to solve research problems and work with businesses and government agencies to make data-driven decisions. LISA statistical collaborators can help design experiments, studies, and surveys; collect, analyze, and plot data; run statistical software; interpret results; and develop strategies to communicate statistical concepts and results to non-statisticians.
LISA serves as research infrastructure by collaborating with researchers on campus on big and small projects that lead to a variety of outcomes such as co-authored publications, grant proposals, internal reports, preliminary data for future projects, theses and dissertations, etc. Submit a collaboration request to meet with a team of LISA collaborators.
LISA started a new service in Spring 2018 called LISA Statistics Walk-in Hours at the Center for Research Data and Digital Scholarship (CRDDS) in Norlin Library E206 on Tuesdays and Thursdays 12-2PM when classes are in session (until Dec. 13, 2018 and resuming January 15, 2018). Walk-in to discuss your domain problem and get solutions to the statistical issues you are facing. Consults are open to all researchers – from undergrad to faculty and beyond. Note: LISA assists with research, not class projects or homework.
This Fall LISA will teach or co-teach a series of short courses and workshops to improve specific statistics and data science skills and increase statistical literacy generally. Our schedule for this semester is set, but not yet posted.
