Consulting by Appointment
I encourage you to look at the Process Guidelines for Statistical Research Analysis before the consultation.
Researchers requiring more time or a different time to discuss the statistical analysis needs of their project can seek an appointment for a virtual or in-person consultation. Please use the scheduler for online appointments and appointments at Howe library or request for assistance form for appointments at Dana library. I encourage you to drop by at the early stage of your research.
I offer workshops on a variety of statistical topics. Come to my next Random Chat about Statistics, or contact me for workshop requests.
