Statistical Lab

The Applied statistics and computing lab assists the faculty's research with statistical methodology and analysis. The lab was set up in March 2010 with the following objectives:

  • To advise ISB faculty on appropriate statistical methodology in their research and to provide assistance in performing the statistical analysis related to the research;
  • To conduct workshops on recent advancements in statistical methodology relevant to the research groups in ISB;
  • To develop/ innovate statistical methods useful in applied research of relevance to the objectives of ISB;
  • To teach the ISB doctoral students Statistics and Econometrics; and
  • To develop routines for recently developed statistical and econometric methods which are not implemented in standard statistical packages.
The ASC lab is also developing online tutorials on statistical methods, in addition to working on a proposal for three-year Research Assistant Programme for bright undergraduates.
