    Data Science Across Disciplines Class of 2024

    This J-term, midd.data mounted our fourth iteration of Data Science Across Disciplines, and it was another big success! Six instructors—Alex Lyford (Mathematics and Statistics), Bert Johnson (Political Science), Pete Nelson (Geography), Katherine O’Brien (Center for Community Engagement), Conor Stinson (‘06.5) and Michael Czekanski (‘20)—worked with fifty students spanning fourteen different declared majors to solve a range of challenging, data-driven problems, while learning the necessary data science and computational tools along the way!
