The Data Analysis Support Core (DASC) aims to help SiA researchers make use of optimal analytic strategies in their research. This requires an alignment between one’s research question, data, and analytical technique. Hence, the DASC is concerned with:

  1. Raising awareness about how to best align these components of empirical research and how to make methodological decisions.
  2. Identifying data analytical challenges and developing new techniques to tackle these, by innovating the individual techniques and by combining dynamic modelling and machine
    learning techniques.
