In addition to traditional teaching, I currently have several travel-ready workshop offerings geared toward fisheries science, quantitative ecology, and broader scientific themes. As a practitioner of R, I see great value in use and collaboration of R software and look forward to teaching it to existing courses, departments, agencies, and other groups. Workshops are fully customizable, based on a group’s experience and interest, and can take place from one afternoon to multiple days.

Available workshop themes (can be combined):

  • Principles of Data Visualization
  • Understanding the peer-review process
  • Introduction to R
  • Data management and manipulation in R
  • Linear modeling in R
  • Multilevel models in R
  • Bayesian methods in R with JAGS
