Our Environment

Our Foundation

We build upon our bedrock of strength in computer science, statistics, and the liberal arts. In addition to data-driven research, we are fundamentally committed to data science education at all levels and across disciplines.

Our Lens

We work toward shaping the future of data-driven policy and the implications of big data for human society. We imbue all data-driven solutions with rigor, reproducibility, and contextual understanding.

We leverage Harvard’s uniquely expansive network to connect cutting-edge technical expertise with deep domain knowledge across sectors including medicine, public health, law, business, and public policy. Our faculty generate data of incredible breadth and variety, creating arguably one of the richest data environments in the world.
