Data Science for Social Good Research Cluster
The Data Science for Social Good Research Cluster arises out of SMU’s Summer REU, entitled “Data Science for Social Good.” Under the direction of Dr. Lynne Stokes, 11 undergraduate students from Texas and across the country came to the SMU campus for training in data science and to work with SMU faculty. Faculty who served as mentors supervised students’ work with data in four areas: economic development, voting fairness, the Dallas County Inland Port’s effect on the community’s access to transportation services, and the fairness of Dallas County eviction and their effect on families. This Research Cluster brings faculty together with others from across the campus and enables them to collaborate outside of the REU as they continue work on their individual projects.
The Data Science for Social Good Research Cluster meets every other Friday in the dining room of Carr Collins Hall on the Law Quad from noon-1:00 p.m.
