R in the world of Education
December 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0
We are very excited to announce our last meetup of the year with Erin Grand.
Her Talk: Many schools across the country are starting to use data to help improve student outcomes. In this talk, Erin will discuss what kind of data she gets to dive into and some of the challenges each project faces. She’ll talk about ways to clean messy data, how using R has helped speed up everything, and the amazing janitor package.
Her Bio: Erin joined Uncommon Schools as an Associate Director of Data Analytics in the summer of 2016. Prior to Uncommon, she worked as a Data Scientist at Crisis Text Line and a software programmer at NASA. She recently completed her masters in Data Science at Columbia University. In the past, Erin researched star formation and taught introductory courses in astronomy and physics. In her free time, Erin enjoys reading, dancing and singing loudly to musical theatre.
