Mission Statement

Our mission in DATA SCIENCE LABORATORY is to provide a dynamic learning environment for education, research, and innovation. As members of an academic laboratory, we strive for training, inspiring, and empowering scholars and professionals to put their Data Science research achievements into practice to address today’s human life challenges and improve the standards of lives. For a better impact, we aspire to collaborate with established researchers and institutions not only in the Data Science era but also in other fields of sciences that can be integrated with our mission’s scopes.

Core Values

Data Science Laboratory operates by the following guiding principles and Values: Growth, Collaboration, Integrity, Diversity, Effective Communication, and Quality. We embrace sharing our achievements and errors in our weekly meetings and discuss what we have learned and what we would do to correct the mistakes. We encourage self-development and collaboration in a diverse and open communication climate. We aim at creating an agile environment in which learning and growing are highly supported for achieving high-quality results.



Research is the core of the activities in this lab. Please visit the research tab to find out more about the recent findings. Prospective graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to contact us to learn about open positions.


We help in development of data solutions from multi-platform mobile and web apps to cloud solutions and dashboards. If you need any help or you have any question, feel free contact us!


We provide professional data science training for your employees or students. Depending on your needs, we can provide daily, hourly, weekly, or after-hours training. Python, data science, machine learning, deep learning, etc. Online cloud-based labs enable remote attendance as well.
