eScience brings together a diverse group of people who use data science tools and methods in different ways.
The eScience Institute is uniquely situated within the University of Washington to be the data science hub for students, faculty, researchers, software engineers, and community stakeholders. Some members of the eScience team are jointly located in other departments aligned with their area of study, and some of our team are entirely affiliated with eScience. Many of our programs involve outside collaborators submitting proposals of their work. What unifies us is how we utilize the latest data science tools and methods in our respective areas.
eScience acts as matchmakers who help researchers apply the most appropriate technology to help advance their work.
eScience is composed of core team of data scientists, software engineers, and administrators who keep everything running. Beyond the eScience Institute, we’ve built out a network of UW postdoctoral Fellows, data science affiliates, partners, and sponsors.
Data Science Fellows
Data Science Fellows are those who work extensively with data in their research and have collaborated with the eScience Institute on numerous projects, events, and programs. There is a nomination process to become a Data Science Fellow.
