The R software ecosystem is currently the most widely used platform for advanced, data-analytic research across all disciplines. R was originally developed by statisticians but is now influential across all of science, social science and the humanities, with many user-contributed R packages having been published for field-specific types of data and analysis. This intensive course will bring together early-career researchers (including PhD students) from across Warwick who wish to learn about key principles of modern Data Science, and details of their application in R.
