# Workshops & Courses

**Workshops**

**Basic Statistics and Experimental Design with R**, School of Cognition, Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Leipzig, 9th and 16th April 2021. It was successful.

**Basics statistics and hands-on data analysis with R**, Institute of Educational Sciences, University of Basel, 20 and 27 November 2020. The online workshop for Doctorate candidates and Post-doctorates was successful (see Testimonials).

On the 13th of March and the 16th of April 2020, I conducted a 2-day workshop: **Basics statistics and hands-on data analysis with R**. The workshop was dedicated for Doctoral candidates and Postdocs of University of Basel under the Graduate Center (GRACE) platform. It was successful (see Testimonials). The workshop introduced the following topics:

- Statistical thinking, an introduction
- Making sense of data (aka Exploratory Data Analysis)
- Introduction to R
- Introduction to Probability
- Making inference: statistical estimation
- Making inference: statistical testing
- Designing an experiment
- Wrap up & beyond đť‘ˇ test.

**Hands-on Data Analysis with R**, University of Neuchatel, CUSO, 10 May 2016. We analyzed three data sets (from the participants) that lead to the following topics:

- Welcome and Road Map
- Linear and Piecewise Linear Regression
- Prediction: GLM and Feature Selection
- Two Way ANOVA with Repeated Measures,

and when you are interested in the R codes, simply contact me. The workshop was excellently organized and very successfulÂ (see also Testimonials). Participants rated it with increasing number ranging from 1 to 5 with the following *median* (*max*). General rate is *4* (*5*), helpfulness of provided slides and R-scripts is *5* (*5*), presenting clarity is *4* (*5*).

To download the slides for the four topics above:

On the 11-12 May 2015, I conducted a 2-day workshop: **Applied Statistics for Computer Scientists**, with R. The 2-day workshop was dedicated for Ph.D. students and postdocs of the Computer Science of CUSO (ConfĂ©rence Universitaire de Suisse Occidentale), the conference of western universities in Switzerland: Bern, Fribourg, Geneva, Lausanne and NeuchĂ˘tel. It was very successful (see Testimonials). The workshop introduced the following topics, together with R implementation for statistical computing and graphics:

- Data Analysis & Production
- Introduction to Probability
- Foundations for Statistical Inference
- Two-way Table & ANOVA
- Multiple linear regression
- Multiple Logistic Regression.
