Consulting in Quantitative Analysis Computing

The Odum Institute maintains a statistical consulting service, staffed by advanced graduate students, who are on call in the Research Hub, 2nd Floor Davis Library Open Lab, to answer routine statistical and programming questions.

To contact the graduate student assistants, please call 919-962-2019 or e-mail odum.lab.consultants@unc.edu. Please note that the consulting service is primarily a walk-in service. During especially busy shifts, the consultants may not regularly answer the phone or be able to respond to e-mail queries. When possible, please come to the desk in person. If your e-mail is not answered in a timely manner, please contact Paul Mihas.

In addition, the Institute full-time staff -- including Chris Wiesen and Cathy Zimmer -- have more advanced expertise in statistical data analysis. These staff members offer individual consultations at all stages of the research process.

Below is a list of consultants' specific areas of statistical and software expertise.
