About our team

We are constantly exploring new research questions, projects and collaborators. With direct access to librarians, collections and data sets, the Unit for Data Science and Analytics, headquartered in Hayden Library on ASU's Tempe campus, is uniquely equipped to connect people, ideas and resources university-wide.

Come to our open sessions. Our team regularly hosts work-ins, meet and greets, and other events that are open to ASU students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community.

Collaborate with our team. Show us what you’re working on or just come explore. If you are new to this domain, that’s even better. Discover how your expertise and interests fit in.

Consult on a specific issue. We can connect you with people, resources, and more through our networks across ASU and within ASU Library.
