Stats Central - Intro to R (1day course May 7, 2019)

Facility: Stats Central

Course Overview

R is widely used and extremely powerful statistical software. This course assumes that you have never used R before. You will learn how to obtain and install R, which is open-source software, and RStudio, which is a versatile, user-friendly interface for using R.

This one-day introduction to R will cover some basic features of R and lay the groundwork for you to improve your R skills independently. The course is self-paced and focussed on developing practical skills.

Analysis of Pretest-Posttest Data: It’s not as straightforward as you might think! - Stats Central Seminar 14 February 2019

Facility: Stats Central

Experimental designs comparing group differences in change over two time points are common in many areas of research. A pre-post design is a simple way to test the effect of an intervention on mean outcomes, but the statistical analysis does pose some questions for the researcher. This talk will outline some of the analysis options available to analyse two-group, pre-post data, including repeated measures analysis of variance, analysis of covariance, change scores and mixed models.

Electron Microscope Unit Seminar on 7th September

Facility: Electron Microscope Unit

Dear all,

Just to bring to your attention a seminar which the Emu will be hosting. This talk will be by a Raul Arenal from the Univsersity of Zaragoza on “Atomic structure/configuration and physical properties studies of hybrid nanostructures by STEM-EELS”.  Raul is an expert in TEM and EELS especially in the study of nanostructures and this promises to be an excellent talk.

The talk is on 7th September at 1pm at 320A in the chemical sciences building. 

See the attached flyer for more information.

Best wishes,

Richard

Analysing small data sets - a mini overview (Seminar 12 July)

Analysing data sets with a small number of observations can be a challenge! This seminar will touch on some of the problems that arise in these analyses and outline a number of analysis methods, together with their limitations. The general types of method we will talk about are parametric (e.g. t test, ANOVA), non-parametric (e.g. Mann-Whitney, Kruskal-Wallis) and randomisation methods.
