This is a space to connect scholars interested in text and data mining, big data, computational analysis, and more with current or past projects produced by the Monash University community. Please also visit the Monash Bioinformatics Platform and Data Fluency sites.
SoDa Laboratories is associated with Monash University's Department of Economics and Department of Econometrics, within the Monash Business School. We exist to discover social science insights from alternative data.
We are data-source agnostic, with expertise and interest in alternative data in all shapes and forms including satellite imagery, digitised textual sources, internet activity and latency, search terms and trends, social media, news, and more. We couple a large appetite for rapidly emerging sources of new data with a pan-empirical toolset that ranges from causal empirical methodologies to the latest data science and machine learning approaches.
