Notes from Flatland

This blog exists to document information that I come across during my doctoral work.  It will mainly focus on advanced statistical techniques, such as multi-level modeling, and statistical software, such as helpful functions and programming styles in R.  Interested readers can subscribe to be notified about posts and comments as they happen via the RSS links below.  The title of this blog reflects an interest in the disparate fields of Dostoyevsky and data visualization pundit Edward Tufte.  But I'd take Kerouac over either of 'em.
