In this talk I will provide an introduction into R and RStudio. I will provide a live demonstration of R and RStudio, discuss their advantages and walk through a tutorial to show the ease of doing analyses in R. I provide additional materials that can be studied by the participants in anticipation of the Q&A session in three weeks time.

I currently hold a post-doctoral position at the department of Methodology & Statistics of Utrecht University in the Netherlands. From December until July I’m consulting as a scientific project manager for Rick Grobbee at the University Medical Center Utrecht. My research interests lie primarily in the area of Bayesian statistics. My docteral thesis, under the supervision of Rens van de Schoot, concerned the use of Bayesian statistics, expert elicitation and information theory in the social sciences. I defended my thesis on March 13 at the acadamy building in Utrecht. In June I joined the Stan development team for my work on shinystan.
