What applications do you currently use R for?

I work for the Human Rights Data Analysis Group, a part of Benetech, a non-profit in Palo Alto, CA. I will use R to clean and analyze data drawn from the Archives of the Guatemalan National Police system, in order to track communication flow during the Guatemalan civil war within the police system and between the police and the military.

What topics would you like to see covered at our Meetups?

Uses of R/statistical analysis for human rights advocacy, spatial-temporal visualizations

Would you be willing to host a talk on your area of expertise?

Unfortunately, I am just a recent graduate and can't really claim to hold much expertise at this time.


Hi there! I recently graduated UCLA with a BS in Statistics (minor in Human Complex Systems). Living currently in the Bay Area and excited to 'meet up'! -Max
