Individual Scientific Computing Support

Columbia University psychology graduate students can stop by to chat about using computing tools at any stage of the research process. Use cases include, but are not limited to:

  • Conducting pre-study power analysis
  • Setting up tools for administering tasks in-person and online
  • Cleaning and analyzing data
  • Preparing presentations and manuscripts

During the 2022-2023 school year, the graduate methods support advisors will be holding office hours by appointment. To schedule a time that works well for you, or for email support, please contact psych-methods-support@columbia.edu.

Additional Instructional Materials

Many of these materials were originally prepared as presentations for Columbia Psychology R users, but are also designed to be stand-alone tutorials that you can read through and learn from remotely. These materials span a wider range of learner skill levels, and assume basic experience with scientific computing.
