LISA (Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis) was created at the University of Colorado Boulder on October 20, 2016. It is a next generation statistical collaboration laboratory based on the model of the Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis at Virginia Tech (2008-2016), which was created by LISA Director Eric Vance in 2008. LISA’s mission is to train students to become interdisciplinary collaborators, provide infrastructure to enable and accelerate high impact research, and engage with the community to improve statistical skills and literacy.

Our statistical collaborators are being trained to 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.

The collaborators are faculty and students in the Department of Applied Mathematics, though we hope to include faculty and students from other departments in the future. Current collaborators have profiles on our website so you can put a face to the name before your first meeting. In addition, faculty not listed may be available for collaboration on a case-by-case basis if your project aligns with their research interests. Discover Applied Math faculty research and collaboration interests on the Professors' Research Areas page.

For now, statistical assistance for CU Boulder researchers is free. Please review our policies. Request a collaboration.
