A great infographic of per-hour growth in major cities.
This is a short presentation on the progress for the VDOT eDNA project.
Here are some slides (click to open) from a presentation I gave on mixed fermentation and the brewing of a Flanders Red for the VCU Fermentation course.
Here are the notes for the March CES Faculty Meeting.
OK, so there is a bit of a circular firing squad going on in some of my R installs with ggplot2. Apparently, you can get various CRAN/Github versions out of sync and a whole host of different. Here is how it started:
This web page is now available as through the following URL’s
because the longer URL is too long and confusing.
A three-part introduction to Bayesian Data Analysis by Rasmus Bååth.
Fancy pie chart (thanks, yihui, you are a genius):
par(mar = c(0, 1, 0, 1))
c(280, 60, 20),
c('Sky', 'Sunny side of pyramid', 'Shady side of pyramid'),
col = c('#0292D8', '#F7EA39', '#C4B632'),
init.angle = -50, border = NA
I have accepted and begun working as the Director of the Center for Environmental Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University. The Center is a chartered research center whose mission is to… Well, do whatever I think it will do to produce the best research and educational opportunities for our undergraduate and graduate students. We train applied scientists.
The Center has about 10 FTE faculty, a lot of which are shared among groups (e.g., half biology/half CES, half business/half CES, etc.) and several quality adjunct instructors. We have about 250 undergraduates, 40 Masters-level graduate students in the program, and several individuals with Ph.D. students in the Integrative Life Sciences program.
Giving a talk up at Temple University, last seminar of the year but one I’ve been looking forward to giving for a while.
As part of a class in Landscape Genetics, faculty (mostly done by Melanie Murphy and Jeffrey Evans) compiled an extensive list of spatial data sources. These were made available on the course website we hosted but I wanted to make a more persistent copy of them here so they will not be lost. They are listed below the break.
Here are my slides from the talk I gave in Dr. Fox’s Survey of Environmental Studies course.
This semester, I’ll be leading a graduate course in applied ecological statistics. Should be a lot of fun getting a group of people up to speed on the benefits of being an R guru!
