ISR Hackerspace with CPS faculty Christopher Fariss

Christopher Fariss

Hackerspace at ISR Hackerspace at ISR
Dr. Fariss is excited to host a weekly Tuesday morning hackerspace from February 12 until April 23. Dr. Fariss uses computational methods and the statistical program R to study why governments around the world torture, maim, and kill individuals within their jurisdiction, and the processes monitors use to observe and document these abuses. Other research projects cover a broad array of themes but share a focus on computationally intensive methods, research design, and the analysis of data at a massive scale.

This weekly meeting with Dr. Fariss is for those with an interest in the R statistical programming language. Both beginners and experienced users are invited to attend. Dr. Fariss plans to introduce mostly introductory material during these sessions but will also cover Bayesian modeling in R and STAN.

The goal is to foster a diverse and inclusive hacking environment in which attendees can benefit from each other’s expertise. To participate, hackers need to bring their own laptops and, ideally, have a chunk of code they are planning to work on unless they plan to assist and join others in their coding endeavors.
