It was such a great experience to participate in the [OSE] Bootcamp. After participating in the program, I got a research assistant position simply by just showing the professor my Github and all of the cool Math/Econ/Computation we did in the [OSE] lab.

2020 OSE Lab Summer Boot Camp Postponed

We are sorry to announce that OSE Lab will not be hosting the boot camp this summer 2020 due to our funding not being renewed.

OSE Lab will be searching for new funding for a summer 2021 boot camp and beyond. In the meantime, OSE Lab will continue to support its current research initiatives and student researchers. Thanks to all the students, instructors, and staff who have made the OSE Lab such a stimulating and collaborative network over the last three years. We look forward to continued future developments.
