R Ladies is a worldwide organization whose mission is to promote gender diversity in the R community.
The R community suffers from an underrepresentation of women* in every area and area of participation, whether as leaders, package developers, conference speakers, conference participants, or users. R Ladies' mission is to achieve proportionate gender representation by encouraging, empowering, educating, and inspiring the minorities currently underrepresented in the R community.
*All references to "women" or "female" are fully inclusive and intersectional. We whole-heartedly welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary folks of all races and ethnicities. Men who support the mission are welcome to attend meetings as a guest of a member.
Cheyanne Simpson and Maria Neuzil will introduce us to topological data analysis and guide us through some TDA basics in R.
Maria and Cheyanne are students at the University of St. Thomas. They conducted research under Prof Rebecca Glover, a member of R Ladies TC. Cheyanne, Maria, and their collaborator won the 2019 Center for Applied Mathematics Summer Research Award.
