Consulting Services

The Department of Statistics offers a free drop-in consulting service to members of the University community.

Under the supervision of a senior faculty member, statistics doctoral candidates and experienced master's students provide assistance in areas such as:

  • Experimental design
  • Data analysis and interpretation of results
  • Model fitting
  • Time series
  • Classification and prediction

We encourage you to drop by, especially in the early stages of your research. At any stage, of course, you may bring data, prior analyses, or any other relevant material.

Please complete this client information form before your visit to help us prepare to help you. Statistics students should please note that this is not a tutoring service.
