Our statistics and data science collaborators are trained to help design experiments, analyze and plot data, run statistical software, interpret results, and communicate statistical concepts to non-statisticians. Our assistance is free for University faculty, staff, and students on academic research projects. The collaborators are faculty and students in the Department of Applied Mathematics and other departments. The earlier in your research you request statistical advice, the better; so learn more about our collaboration service or Request a Collaboration Meeting. We are currently accepting requests for Spring 2022. During the Spring 2022 semester meetings may occur remotely via Zoom or similar technologies or in-person.

LISA Statistics and Data Science Zoom-in Hours

LISA continues to partner with the Center for Research Data and Digital Scholarship (CRDDS) to sponsor free Walk-in or Zoom-in hours to help researchers with statistics and data science every Tuesday noon-1PM and Thursday 1-2PM when classes are in session in the Spring and Fall semesters (not Summer). Zoom-in hours require pre-registration. (We are doing this to prevent disruptive Zoom bombing.) You may register by completing a survey form for Tuesdays (noon-1PM) and Thursdays (1-2PM). 

The Zoom link for Tuesdays' and Thursdays' Interdisciplinary Data Consult Hours will be sent to those completing this registration form.

Zoom in to discuss your domain problem and get solutions to the statistical issues you are facing. Visits are open to all researchers – from undergrad to faculty and beyond. Note: LISA assists with research, not class projects or homework.

Short Courses

Starting in January 2022 we will again teach our "Coding in R Workshop Series" with CRDDS to help researchers (especially graduate students) use statistics and R in their research. Recordings and materials for past courses, including our "Statistics in Python" short course series, are available on this website: View course list
