The Massive Data Institute at the McCourt School of Public Policy is devoted to the study of high-dimensional data and innovate applications of data to public policy questions. The Institute uses Big Data sets to increase understanding of society and human behavior and thus improve public policy decision-making.
Incredible advances in public policy are possible by bringing together the scientists who can analyze these data and the policy practitioners in the government and nonprofit sectors that can design and implement policies.
We invite you to meet our faculty, learn more about our research, and explore our work to use Data for Social Good. The Massive Data Institute also regularly awards seed grants, houses postdocs, and hosts faculty seminars on public policy and massive data.
