Face-to-face Consultations

Are you an Honours, Masters or PhD student or staff member at ANU looking for statistical advice?

The Statistical Support Network is staffed by experienced practising statisticians who maintain regular contact with other statisticians at the ANU, CSIRO and elsewhere. You can request an appointment to discuss your statistical issues with us. 

In most cases, a support network member will contact you within 5 days of your request. There is no question too big or small that our members aren't happy to help with. Our members are located across many ANU Colleges, with the Lead of the Network based in the Division of Research & Innovation to coordinate to the Network’s activities.

We encourage consulting one of our members as soon as the research starts to make the consultations much more beneficial. Masters & PhD students are encouraged to bring their supervisor(s) to their first consultation. Honours students are encouraged to bring their supervisor(s) to every consultation. Please follow the data organisation guidelines when providing your dataset to any consultant. 

Advice will not ordinarily be given over the phone unless the one to one consultation needs to be undertaken that way. In our experience, a 'quick' question often masks a complex research problem, requiring a consultation for discussion of all the issues.
