As data analysis plays an increasingly large role in the humanities and disciplines across academia, there has been a corresponding proliferation of tools for data manipulation and visualization. In this demonstration, Matt Landis will introduce the most popular computer language for data analysis: R, as well as the software and resources needed to use it effectively for your own research. No prior experience with data analysis or coding is necessary, and novices and faculty interested in learning more about data are encouraged to attend.

Matthew Landis is a Visiting Scholar at Middlebury College and a Research Scientist at ISciences, LLC in Burlington, Vermont where he works on a variety of issues at the interface of environment and society.  He has been using R daily for more than 10 years.

Lunch will be served beginning at 12 pm with the demonstration beginning at 12:15. Please RSVP using the sign-up sheet below.
