Building a Personal Website using R

Baltimore, Maryland

There are many great reasons to create a personal academic website as a graduate student. I will be walking students through this very helpful tutorial by Alison Hill on building a personal website using R Studio and Blogdown, and try to show students how easily they can create and update a website to highlight their research achievements and upcoming talks, and begin to form their online academic identity!
