A Vision and Strategy for the Future

Here at the Red Cell Analytics Lab, we provide hands-on experience using structured analytics to examine real-world issues. Whether it be cyber-threats, natural disasters, physical threats, we need to think like the adversary to identify blind spots and gaps in the systems that are in place today.


All active Penn State students in good standing who have interest in a career in analytics are encouraged to join. The club is perfect for anyone in SRA/IST but it is open to every active student at PSU.


The Red Cell Analytics Lab was designed to give students experience in analyzing real world problems and to prepare students for the professional world by helping them develop critical thinking skills and learn to think like their enemy.


We exist to promote the research, practice and application of structured analytics, critical thinking and visual analytics; collaborate with University and external partners on real problems in the area of Security and Risk. Gain valuable experience toward getting a job and take advantage of an opportunity to create deliverables to help you stand out from the crowd.


We meet at various times throughout the semester, join our emailing list to find out when our next one is! All meetings are open to all members as well as any prospective members, the best place to learn about all of our upcoming and recent events is above in our Events Calendar. Our meetings are 6-7 pm in E202 Westgate.
