In this post, I'd like to discuss the common misconceptions/viewpoints that are destructive to new students. The Dunning-Kruger effect I know something, so everyone else is dumb You just

Recommendations for First Year Graduate Students

This blog post is a little late; I wanted to get it out sooner. As new students have flooded the halls for the new terms at JHU Biostat, I figured I would give some recommendations to our new students, and biostatistics students in general.

A better interactive neuroimage plotter in R

In a previous post, I described how you can interactively explore a 3D nifti object in R. I used the manipulate package, but the overall results were sluggish and not really usable. I was introduced to a a good neuroimaging viewer called Mango, by a friend or two and use it somewhat inconsistently. One major

#rstats Make arrays into vectors before running table

Setup of Problem While working with nifti objects from the oro.nifti, I tried to table the values of the image. The table took a long time to compute. I thought this was due to the added information about a medical image, but I found that the same sluggishness happened when coercing the nifti object to
