Research Planning

We consult with researchers on a variety of planning activities, including:
  • Tools, approaches, and methods to answer research questions
  • Development of reproducible workflows
  • Hardware and equipment specifications 
  • Secure data storage and handling
  • Survey sampling and participant pools
We can also assist with language for grant and IRB applications, specifically:
  • Budget planning for hardware, services, and other computational resources
  • Technical description of shared storage and computational resources
  • Data management or sharing plans 
  • Strategies for protecting confidentiality of research participants

Thanks and we look forward to working together!
