  • Throwing it back to our workshop with Rushan, where we learned how to swim in the vast ocean of data with R! 🐢🌊🐢
From importing to visualizing, Rushan taught us the basics of coding and statistical analysis workflow. 

Now we're equipped to plan our data collection around research questions and run models with ease. Thank you, Rushan! @rushanicus_singaporensis
