Lab Mission

The C.A.R.E.S. Lab is focused on improving research in the social sciences, with a particular emphasis on issues in education. This improvement can come from achieving any of the following goals:
  1. Developing robust, interpretable, and accessible statistical methodology tailored to contexts found in these fields.
  2. Translating existing methodology , evaluating and demonstrating existing methodology on real-world applications.
  3. Enhancing the training of researchers in these contexts.

Our collective research targets (1) and (2).  Our lab meetings and paper reading groups target (3), while generating material for furthering (1) and (2).

We also strive to be anti-racist in our actions by promoting a vibrant and welcoming research community internally and looking for opportunities to dismantle racism externally.
