Over the past few months, I've organized a series of 20+ coding workshops and hacky hours focused on learning data tidying, analysis, and visualization skills in R/RStudio. The group has covered the basics of using R and RMarkdown, cleaning up data using the tidyverse, creating beautiful visualizations using ggplot and sf, collaborating with others using Git and GitHub, and lots more. If you're interested in following along, all session recordings, scripts, and datasets can be found at our repository on GitHub. Also, I'd like to extend a huge thank you to our many guest lecturers as well as a special thank you to the authors of the palmerpenguins package - Allison Horst, Alison Hill, and Kristen Gorman - which makes several appearances throughout the series.
I am a Modelscape Postdoctoral Scholar in Natural Resources and Environmental Science at the University of Nevada, Reno (2021-present).
