The center brings together faculty from colleges and disciplines across DePaul University and fosters research collaborations in data science or allied fields.


We develop innovative tools and methods in data science and focus on the application of these techniques in areas such as intelligent Web systems, social computing, business intelligence, healthcare, hospitality, marketing, image analysis, and more.


Research Labs

Faculty and students have access to specialized labs that are equipped with advanced technology, software and experimental tools.

About the Center

The DePaul Center for Data Science is an Interdisciplinary Research Center that is the home of passionate and expert faculty as well as enthusiastic and bright students. The Center aims to both innovate the computing discipline through harnessing the power of the data revolution and nurture the next generation of computer and data scientists. Faculty have expertise across a wide variety of areas, such as biomedical and health informatics, imaging analytics, interactive machine learning, marketing analytics, recommender systems, database forensics, and high performance and scientific computing. Whether through capstone projects, independent studies, or research credits, faculty engage students in state-of-the-art research and practice activities that set them apart when they graduate and give them a strong foundation for data-oriented careers in computing. The Center is continuously looking for industry collaborations to bridge the gap between the theory and practice, and brings together academics and practitioners through research colloquiums, workshops, and collaborative projects.
