Unlocking the Potential of Big Data

Data+ is a summer research experience for Duke undergraduates interested in exploring data-driven approaches to interdisciplinary challenges. Students join small project teams for 10 weeks each year, collaborating with other teams in a communal environment. They learn how to marshal, analyze, and visualize data while gaining broad exposure to the modern world of data science.

Organizers are currently accepting proposals from faculty for 2020 Data+ projects. Recent topics include:

  • Big Data for Reproductive Health
  • Recidivism in the Durham County Jail
  • Basketball Analytics Pipeline – From Raw Video to Dynamic Visualization
  • Detecting and Predicting Impacts of Saltwater Intrusion on Coastal Ecosystems
  • Invisible Adaptations: From Hamlet to The Avengers
