I'm a first-year student in the Ph.D. in Applied Demography program at the University of Texas - San Antonio. I have not yet used R, but I expect to use the program heavily this term and throughout my tenure as a doctoral student.
This group is comprised of serious statisticians currently working in the field. Yet, as a doctoral student who is just beginning to learn R, I was welcomed and encouraged to ask questions. I will certainly join this group at future meetups.
