The Data Science Institute (DSI) aims to accelerate research in data science, serving as a
nucleating effort to catalyze interdisciplinary research collaborations across fields
impacting our society.
Serving as a hub for interdisciplinary research, collaboration and excellence, the DSI
brings together faculty and students from seven colleges across campus to work
effectively with big data and address problems and opportunities facing society—from
health sciences, physical sciences, environmental sciences, to behavioral and social
sciences and public policy. The Institute will further involve partnerships with industry
and other institutions in the region.
