What We Do

Our PhD consulting team serves the Harvard/MIT social science community, performing free in-person consulting on research issues as a part of the Institute for Quantitative Social Science.

Specifically, we aim to provide:

  • Data analysis support and programming services
  • Research project planning and guidance selecting appropriate technology for research projects
  • Facilitating appropriate organization, storage and sharing of data
  • Training on the use of both established software packages and emerging tools

Anyone who works on research can use our services, including faculty, staff, fellows and graduate students.

Curious if we can help you?  Look at some previous projects to see how we've helped other researchers.
