Welcome to the Marquette University Data Science REU Wiki
Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates
Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Site : Data Science Across Disciplines
June 1 - August 6, 2021
Sponsored by National Science Foundation Award#1950826
Hosted by Marquette University—Department of Computer Science, Milwaukee, WI
It is now well established that there is a critical need for data science researchers who can think creatively to solve problems in interdisciplinary fields such as healthcare, social science, and exercise science. Further, there exists scarcity of workforce and opportunities to train the next generation of researchers to tackle the problems in data science. To address the scarcity, this Data Science Across Disciplines Research Experiences for Undergraduates Site (DSAD-REU) will immerse undergraduate students in an interdisciplinary research-intensive training and mentoring program.
Our mentor research areas lie in all of these areas, as well as in how people learn to work in these fields, and how we prepare the next generation of students to explore data science.
- Research themes/projects from different areas in data science such as core data science, exercise science, healthcare, social science and spatial analytics.
- 3-day mini boot camp on introduction to data science (first week of the program).
- Mentoring by researchers at Marquette University, Milwaukee, WI.
- Professional and leadership development opportunities.
- Poster presentation, technical report and publication opportunities.

We expect to run the program on-campus, however due to uncertainty of the pandemic, we may move the program to virtual. The decision to be in-person or virtual will be made by the end of March 2021. Please find the Data Science REU Summer 2021 flyer in pdf and jpg formats.
