You don’t have to have any programming experience to take this class. The goal is to familiarize participants with the basics of R programming.

 R is a programming language widely used by statisticians. I hope students will leave this workshop with an understanding of R’s tools for scientific computation and data analysis. R is especially useful in my work as I develop statistical and computational methods for microbiome studies, a field focused on studying bacteria in the human body and in environmental samples from across the globe. We still don’t know about all of the bacterial species out there. This research could eventually lead to important health discoveries.

I was raised by my Sicilian mother in the small town of Saugerties in upstate New York. I was never very good at school, but I was dedicated to playing all kinds of sports and skateboarding. By high school, I also loved coding. I’d work from a thick book to teach myself to code video games.
