Group Meetings

During the 2024 Spring and Summer terms, group meetings will be held 11-11:50am on select Thursdays (see Table below) in B106 EB.

This spring and summer, we will focus on learning several important techniques of data analysis: eigenvalue decomposition, singular value decomposition, principal component analysis, and clustering. Well before each meeting, we will send out links to resources so participants can learn about the data analysis techniques before discussing and applying them in lab meeting.

Visitors are welcome to join us. If you are a visitor and would like to receive the links to resources before the meeting, email Prof. Charles at

We anticipate the following schedule, but please refer to this table for updates:
