How We Can Help

We offer research design and statistical analysis collaboration. Our services are generally focused on data analysis and experimental design. Our analysis is typically performed through R, SAS, Stata, SPSS programming, as well as PASS and Excel software programs.

Face-to-Face meetings are a great way to talk to start discussions on your project. To setup a face-to-face meeting, please email Matt at Matthew.Robinson@ucf.edu or Shawn Zhu at Xiang.Zhu@ucf.edu, or complete the following form (Form Link) and we will reach out to you.

Generally, our services are focused on three main categories: statistical guidance, research design, and data analysis.

Statistical Guidance

We can provide professional advice as to what methods, software, and presentation may be most effective or appropriate for the projects and collaborators needs.

Research Design

We can provide assistance with the statistical design of research projects in the following ways:

  • Sample Size Calculations
  • Power Analysis
  • Determining appropriate and best statistical methodologies to be used
  • Randomization Lists
