Our aim is to promote and conduct theoretical and applied research that addresses challenging issues arising from the analysis of large-scale datasets and the modeling of the underlying complex phenomena. We are building a community of high-profile scholars to bridge the gap across Data Science disciplines and support the training of the new generation of data scientists by providing them with advanced statistical, mathematical and computational skills.
