A social science research group at a university in New York was studying the correlation between physical fitness and academic performance. They had a large data set with close to 800,000 records and they needed help structuring the data and making sense of it.
The researcher posted his project on Kolabtree and received 7 proposals from data analysts across the globe. He chose to work with Dr. Michelle Lochner, a London-based astrophysicist, who was used to working with large numbers in her profession. The project was successfully completed in 6 weeks.
