The past few years have witnessed the development of a range of mathematical data analysis approaches to understand large data. These approaches necessarily identify specific aspects of the topology and geometry of the data, and involve dimensionality reduction processes. I will discuss methods that combine multiple such approaches to underscore the topology of the data.

Applications to real data from disease will be discussed.
