D-Lab offers consulting services on research design, data analysis, data management, and related techniques and technologies. We welcome inquiries from Berkeley faculty, staff, postdocs, and grad students at all levels of expertise. Our standard consulting services are free of charge. In general, we provide consulting for you at your research stage, NOT for coursework. Please use your TAs for support specific to individual classes or assignments.  



D-Lab Consulting Services are minimally staffed during the summer. Consequently we may not respond to your submitted request within the normal response time (3-7 days). We ask that you hold any non-urgent requests until the start of the Fall semester (August 21, 2019).


To submit a request to meet with a D-Lab consultant:

  • Use the descriptions below to select the consultant whose areas of expertise seem to best meet your needs. Then click on their By Appointment link to submit your request. Note, you must be logged-in to submit a consult request.
  • Please do not submit the same request to multiple consultants at the same time.
  • Include in your request a brief description of your project, your data and your current stage in the research process. 

Submit a NEW request for all consultations, even if you have corresponded directly with a consultant before.  This includes the additional request and all subsequent meeting requests.
