Welcome to the DSMMA Program!
The National Science Foundation-supported research training program Data Science in Multi-Messenger Astrophysics at the University of Minnesota is designed to train graduate students in modern data science techniques, using as a training ground the field of Multi-Messenger Astrophysics (MMA). MMA is an emerging field of astrophysics where multiple messengers are used to study astrophysical and cosmological events and processes: light, gravitational waves, neutrino particles, cosmic rays, and gamma rays.
The Data Science in MMA program brings together students and faculty from diverse backgrounds to enable breakthroughs in the MMA field based on deployment of modern data science tools. Students from physics and astrophysics, as well as from traditional data-science fields (statistics, computer science, electrical engineering, mathematics, and others) are encouraged to participate in the program.
