Summer 2023 Workshops

Summer sessions will be held in person only in 291 Clark Hall. Workshops are open to the Cornell community!

Data Manipulation & Analysis Practice Sessions

Practice makes perfect. Join hands-on sessions where you will work through Data Science problem sets with the instructor to advance your programming skills. These sessions are designed for researchers who have already attended an introductory course and would like to try out what they learned through guided exercises. 

These trainings are geared towards operations often used throughout the data analysis process. Topics that will be covered include but are not limited to uploading data, cleaning and manipulation, analysis, and interpreting output.  

The final 15 minutes will include information comparing these three popular statistical software applications, Python, Stata and R, frequently used by Cornell researchers. Which application best fits your situation? How are they different? In what circumstances is one more useful than the other?
