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.
