About Us

Boosting Research and Insight

We are a group of scientists who care about one thing: delivering the most rigorous research-based insight to you. How do we do it? By having top data and social scientists work together, and by combining cutting-edge technology with the most advanced data and social science approaches.



Our Approach


Data Science and Social Science

Instead of choosing one approach over the other, we believe that combining data science with social science results in unparalleled research power. Using custom scripts, machine learning, and other advanced statistical modelling techniques, our data scientists build models that detect patterns in massive amounts of data to answer the "what" question. Our social scientists research root causes underlying observed patterns and deviations in the data. Their keen understanding of different cultures and supplemental research that involves tools such as observations, online diaries, surveys and experiments, helps fine-tune data models by answering the “why” question. Working together, our scientists understand the data on a much deeper level, develop exceptionally accurate models, and provide razor-sharp insight.

Black-Belt Scientists

Our social scientists have PhDs from the world's best research institutions. They have rich experience in studying behaviors, emotions and practices of people in diverse organizations, regions, and cultures. Our data scientists have exceptional skills. They have authored books, articles, algorithms, and software packages. They have used their platforms to scrape online data, boost existing models, and build innovative ones. This interdisciplinary group of black-belt scientists brings knowledge and insight across research approaches. It constantly improve ways to collect and analyze data and to get your research done.

Covering Every Piece of the Puzzle

Our unparalleled combination of data scientists and social scientists lets us to offer a range of data-intensive research services. But, to get your research done, we want to make sure that we can understand and help you with all of your research. If you do not already have data, or you want to supplement the data that you have, we also offer services to identify new data, and develop data collection platforms. In addition, we code, write algorithms, prepare data for analysis, and visualize data. In short, what we offer are end-to-end data science and social research services, covering your research from start to finish, and performed at the highest quality.
