It's blogging time

First post! Since I have successfully survived my first year of grad school, I’ve decided to start blogging while working on my various projects. I’m doing this to: (1) share what I’m working on (instead of just tweeting), (2) learn by attempting to write instructive blog posts, and (3) because multiple people keep telling me this is a good idea… we’ll find out. Hopefully you’ll find my posts useful and educational, as I’ll be providing R code thanks to the incredible blogdown package by Yihui Xie (more info here).
