Department of Mathematics & Statistical Sciences
College of Science, Engineering, and Technology


The programs we offer in the Department of Mathematics and statistical Sciences are comprehensive and will lead you to great career opportunities. If you join us you will grow to be a sophisticated mathematician or statistician. We acquaint you with the diverse areas of mathematics and statistics. You will discover the joy of learning mathematics or statistics. You will become a scholar. You will learn the beauty of both mathematics and statistics as an art. As you go through this site, you will discover our academic programs and our supporting activities.We offer programs leading to bachelor’s degrees in mathematics, statistics, secondary mathematics teaching. We also offer graduate programs leading to master’s degrees in mathematics, the teaching of mathematics and a doctorate with concentration in computational mathematics and statistical sciences and award scholarships and provide financial support to our top students. We are in the College of Science, Engineering, and Technology and our students work with faculty and students from many other departments. We have a highly qualified, caring, and dedicated faculty, who will train you to become the best mathematician or statistician you can be. The doctoral degree program with a concentration in computational mathematics and statistical sciences is through the College of Science, Engineering and Technology’s Ph.D. program in Computational Data-Enabled Sciences and Engineering (CDS&E). As a mathematician or statistician you can have careers in medical and pharmaceutical companies, high tech industries, and Wall Street Market trading and the doctorate prepares you for careers outside as well as within the academic setting. Mathematics and statistics are both challenging and interesting fields that almost all academic and professional fields depend on. To succeed, you will have to work hard and study diligently. We know you can do it and we are ready to help you. We urge you to come to Jackson State University and choose a major in the Department of Mathematics and Statistical Sciences.

Welcome to LISA-QED (Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis, Quantitative Exploration of Data and Visualization)

LISA-QED is an interdisciplinary laboratory funded by National Science Foundation through the EXTREEMS-QED project. It is equipped with an OptiPortal (for visual analytics) and associated technologies for local and distance real-time research collaboration and conferencing. It supports campus wide statistical consulting, analysis, advising, education and research. These services are provided through individual collaborating meetings, walk-in consulting, short workshops and interdisciplinary research projects.

LISA-QED lab provides resources for developing new statistical theories derived out of large data remotely obtained from fields such as meteorology and atmospheric sciences, genomics, bioinformatics, economics, business, social and behavioral sciences. It is also used as a Computational Data-Enabled Science and Engineering (CDS&E) facility responsible for providing the university community access to Cyber Infrastructure enabling technologies. It is open to the research and professional communities at Jackson State University for remote access to large data and it maintains membership subscriptions to the appropriate national depositors of big data sets. It is also needed to achieve the goal of providing hands-on CDS&E demonstrations. 

LISA-QED is also scheduled for providing regularly scheduled workshop training for R, SAS, SPSS and other statistical programming packages and mathematical programming tools and visualization such as Mathematica, MATHLAB and ParaView.

LISA-QED statistical collaborators are trained to help researchers design experiments, analyze and Explore data, visual analytics, run statistical software, interpret results, and communicate statistical concepts to people who lacks in-depth statistical knowledge. Our collaborators include professors and students from our statistics program and Ph.D. Students in the CDS&E.

These services are free to Jackson State University faculty, staff and students only on non-class academic research projects. 

The following is a list of common areas of collaboration we may provide:

  1. Experimental Design
  2. Computational Statistics
  3. Regression Analysis
  4. General Data Evaluation (to suggest researchers to adopt suitable statistical methods for Economic, Financial, Environmental,  Sports data as well as data sets from other research fields)
  5. Mathematical Statistics and Probability
  6. Multivariate Analysis
  7. Nonparametric Analysis
  8. Time Series
  9. Biostatistics
  10. Statistics Training Workshops

How to get Walk-In Consulting and Collaboration services?

Walk-In Consulting: Walk-In Consulting will be provided Monday through Friday during specified time. In general, our consultant will assist you with your research for some quick questions in 30 minutes. Please refer to the Consulting page for the walk-in hours.

Collaboration Service: If you or the consultant think you need more time on thorough statistical analysis, you may schedule a collaboration with us. Please refer to the Collaboration page for more information.
