Campus Connections

Looking for a Data Scientist to Help with your Research?

Large, complex datasets underlie research in all disciplines throughout the university. Whether you’re exploring ancient texts, image and sound libraries, public documents, genomes, chromatographs, bond yields, or social-media interactions, we can help you extract meaning and value from these and the myriad of other datasets housed at Columbia.

With our growing team of applied data scientists--our skilled MS students, our advanced PhD talent, and our expert applied data scientists--we can support research across campus with work throughout the data science life cycle.  We can evaluate your dataset, categorize its elements, and apply advanced statistics and algorithms to analyze your data and extract valuable insights.

Fill out this form* to find data science talent matched to your specific needs. We will consider requests for short-term discrete projects and ongoing complex work. We can even try to help with the ever present “I-just-don't-know-what-to-do-with-all-these-data” problem. 

A member of our DSI Research Team will reach out to you within 3-5 business days after you’ve submitted your request. Please include as much information as possible to enable timely support for your work.

DSI Research. Supporting Columbia. Data for Good.
