About Us

DataLab is an initiative of the College of Science at George Mason University conducting multidisciplinary research and developing solutions on large-scale Data Analytics. Our faculty also provides education and training in Data Science and Data Analytics.

DataLab engages researchers across George Mason working on Computational and Data Sciences, as well on data-intensive application areas, such as Medical and Life Sciences, Computational Social Sciences, Earth Systems, GeoIntelligence and Transportation, and Evidence-based Policy.

We aim to partner with Academia, Industry, and Government in a collaborative, diverse, cross-disciplinary environment, to seek and try new ideas for innovation, education, and best practices.
