Target Audience: Academic Staff, Postgraduate Researchers

StrathMethods brings together researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds to share experiences and research methods.

Currently held virtually, we bring together researchers from across the University to discuss methods used in their research - and how you can use them too!

Each session is also a great chance to meet other academics from across Faculties and Departments, in a relaxed and friendly way.

There will be time for Q&A in the second half of each session.


Any problems with booking please email sustainabledevelopment@strath.ac.uk.

July 19th:

For this session we will have with us Dr. Jack Laverick, Research and Knowledge Exchange Associate in Mathematics and Statistics.

Jack will take us through some of the various applications of a commonly used tool, the R programming language, and how it may be applied to solve various research questions across fields.

Jack studied biological sciences as an undergraduate and received his PhD in environmental research from the University of Oxford. Jack has been at Strathclyde since 2019 as a marine biologist and data scientist and has used R for over a decade. He’s going to give us a whistle-stop tour of some of the ways he’s used R throughout his career.
