Beyond Academia (May 2016 - present)

Co-Director, January 2017 - present
Beyond Academia is an organization of approximately 15 graduate student and postdocs at UC Berkeley whose mission is to provide opportunities for our peers to explore careers outside of the tenure track. Our flagship event is a two-day conference featuring dozens of professionals with PhDs who have successfully transitioned to careers outside the tenure track, though we also program other events throughout the year.

Introduction to R & RStudio

Published in UC Berkeley - The Hacker Within (Berkeley Institute for Data Science), 2016

This introduction to R & RStudio was presented in collaboration with Micha Kahlen.


Data Tidying and Transformation in R & Python

Published in UC Berkeley - The Hacker Within (Berkeley Institute for Data Science), 2017

Together with David DeTomaso and Andrey Indukaev, I planned a presentation on the basics of data tidying and transformation, performing the same operations in parallel for R & Python, demonstrating the versatility of both languages for data analysis. I presented the R sections while David presented the Python sections. The Jupyter Notebooks we used are located in github.com/diyadas/tutorials.


Data Visualization in R

Published in UC Berkeley - The Hacker Within (Berkeley Institute for Data Science), 2017

Following my presentation with David DeTomaso on data transformation in R & Python, I gave a presentation on the basics of visualization in R, to be followed by a parallel presentation in Python by David on April 18. The relevant Jupyter Notebooks are located in github.com/diyadas/tutorials.


Yet Another Git(Hub) Tutorial

Published in UC Berkeley - CDIPS Data Science Workshop Tutorials Week (Berkeley Institute for Data Science), 2017

I gave a presentation on the basics of Git and GitHub, geared towards first-time users in collaborative settings. This was the first day of a series of tutorials I am organizing for the 2017 CDIPS Data Science Workshop. Thanks to sponsorship from the Berkeley Institute for Data Science, the tutorials are free and open to the public. The presentation is located in github.com/diyadas/yagt.
