Advanced Methods at Purdue (AMAP) in the Behavioral, Health, and Social Sciences


AMAP is a cross-college initiative working towards increasing methodological expertise and collaborative opportunities in the behavioral, health, and social sciences. We are accomplishing this goal by (1) hosting a monthly work-in-progress seminar series, regular workshops, and facilitating external speakers for talks and conferences; (2) and by developing a shared graduate training platform beginning with a graduate certification program in advanced interdisciplinary statistics and methodologies.

We welcome student and faculty involvement from all levels of methodological ability, and hope you will help us to build an accessible and inclusive community of scholars. 

Meet our co-directors, our 14 core faculty members, and our 95 faculty affiliates. Looking for a methodological expert? See a list of all AMAP members sorted by their methodological expertise.
