Statistical Support

Statistical consulting is available for any phase of a research project, from study design and data collection to data analysis to communicating results.

We particularly encourage you to come discuss projects that are still in the development or design stage - no need to wait for data! Statistical guidance can often be most helpful before data collection begins.

Email Casey Pattanayak to schedule a consulting meeting: Please include a very brief description of your project and the issue you'd like to discuss.

Since June 2013, the QAI has provided statistical advice for more than 150 projects. We have worked with faculty, student, and other researchers in anthropology, astrophysics, biological sciences, chemistry, cognitive and linguistic sciences, computer science, economics, English, biochemistry, French, engineering, quantitative reasoning, environmental studies, library and technology services, neuroscience, political science, psychology, Russian, sociology, history, math, women and gender studies, and the Wellesley Centers for Women.
