Statistical Software Support and Consulting: Workshops


I offer workshops on a variety of data related topics. Check out the calendar below and sign up for one of my next Random Chats about Data.

Workshops are in person to facilitate conversations and discussions. I will touch on the big concepts and then we will look at the nuances on how to apply these bigger ideas to your data for your personal research goals. This will help you get comfortable with data analysis as well as help you understand and interpret data presented in the literature. Please come prepared to talk about your own specific data questions.

Can't make it on campus? - Sign up for a one-on-one online session with me to discuss your statistics and data analysis questions.
