Department of Experimental Statistics



The Department of Experimental Statistics provides free, state-of-the-art statistical consulting services to all faculty, staff, and students affiliated with the University and the LSU AgCenter. Consulting sessions usually include an EXST faculty member and one or more EXST graduate students. The first consulting session is usually limited to one hour; follow-up meetings may be scheduled.

The spirit of our consulting service is a collegial outreach for cross-fertilization of ideas and the promotion of sound statistical methods. Consulting sessions may lead EXST faculty to create new statistical methodology, or generate special problems or theses for EXST students, or lead to a cooperative research arrangement among parties.

To schedule a consulting session, contact Sylvia Atkins at satkin2@lsu.edu. Please include the following information in your e-mail:

  • Name
  • Department
  • Days/times you are available to meet
  • Contact information (email, phone)
  • Brief description of the nature of your problem.
  • Whether you are faculty, staff, or a graduate student (PhD, Masters, other).

You may request to meet with a specific EXST faculty member, but there is no guarantee that the person you request will be available.
