As a post-doctoral scholar, I aimed to work for 40 hours a week on research on projects. I rarely working overtime as is often recommended. Instead, I volunteered and worked seasonal jobs on the side. These part-time jobs have improved my quality of life and been a source of professional development. In this post, I'll talk about some of the things I've learned at what it means for my future career.
Esta publicación de blog explica cómo uso R para analizar los datos de Twitter para comprender mejor quién está tuiteando en las conferencias y cuán impactantes son esos tweets. Espero que encuentre útil esta explicación y que lo inspire a realizar sus propios análisis de los datos de Twitter.
This blog post explains how I use R to analyze Twitter data to gain a better understanding of who is tweeting at conferences and how impactful those tweets are. I hope you find this explanation useful and that it inspires you to conduct your own analyses of Twitter data.
With this blog post, my goal is to demonstrate how scientists can to use bar charts instead of Venn diagrams to communicate empirical results in an easy-to-reproduce manner.
Do you ever co-teach with your colleagues? As in sharing the stage, not only splitting the workload? Here's a little story that illustrates how much more engaging class can be when professors teach collaboratively and facilitate conversation.
I highly recommend the online RStudio Teaching Certification Course taught by Greg Wilson
The goal of this blog post is to provide community managers with a few strategies for foster relationships within scientific communities to facilitate the exchange of ideas and information.
That's right. After living in Austin, Texas for 15-ish years, I'm moving to Davis, California to continue my postdoctoral research. Here are some musings some musings about my move and a playlist.
Live coding screencasts are way more awesome when the text can be copied. asciinema makes this possible.
