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

Upcoming AMAP Events (Spring 2022)

Brown Bags (10:00AM - 11:00AM Wed / 11:00AM - 12:00PM Thurs)

Brown bags are AMAP's regular seminar series held on the first Tuesday or Wednesday of the month, where presenters bring their current work in various stages of completion. Presenters may ask advice of the group for a problem they are stuck on, present on a new method they are working out, or may come seeking practice talking about their work from a methodological angle. Presentations do not have to be on methods projects -- in fact, we encourage presentations of substantive research projects; however, we do encourage presenters to discuss their methods in-depth during their presentations. The atmosphere is friendly and supportive. Usually, we schedule faculty members for the entire brown bag time. We usually schedule two graduate students per brown bag, with each graduate student receiving 30 minutes to both present and to receive feedback (in general, we encourage graduate students to present for about 15 minutes to leave about 15 minutes for Q&A). If you are interested in presenting at a brown bag, please contact AMAP@purdue.edu.

Workshops 

AMAP hosts a variety of one and two-day workshops on a wide range of advanced methodological and statistical topics. The workshops are designed to provide participants -- which can include faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students -- with supplemental training on advanced topics in quantitative and qualitative methods. The workshops are designed around methods that can be adequately covered in a single day and/or methods rarely covered in most graduate courses but that are useful for applied researchers.

Special Events

AMAP also hosts various other events such as invited lectures, symposiums, and receptions. These are great meet-and-greets that allow for networking both within and outside of Purdue.
