Sandra Pereira will classify and analyze any numerical information you – dear grad student, researcher, university office, or outside firm — bring her, and the first 30 minutes are free of charge.
Pereira is a statistician for hire, and has recently started working for the U of M. Since 1970’s, the Department of Statistics in the Faculty of Science has offered a Statistical Consulting Service (SCS), helping researchers and departments do everything from design experiments and data collection surveys, to developing a data analysis strategy or summarizing survey results.
“The aim is to provide reliable information to the clients and they will apply the knowledge to make decisions – to be conservative or proactive. They give us a ‘noisy’ picture, and we give them a beautiful picture. I love providing accurate, helpful, informative advice for all our clients,” Pereira says.
