Garret Christensen will participate in the Data Stories and Visualization Panel at UC Berkeley Love Data Week 2018 on Tuesday, February 14, 2018. Garret will discuss how he used Department of Defense data obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request to research how war deaths were affecting the supply of military recruits.

What does it mean to work reproducibly and transparently? Why bother? Whom does it benefit, and how? What will it cost me? What work habits will I need to change? Will I need to learn new tools? What resources help? What's the simplest thing I can do to make my work more reproducible? How can I move my discipline, my institution, and science as a whole towards reproducibility? Check out Leamer-Rosenthal Prize for Open Social Science recipient Philip Stark's upcoming lecture on reproducibility.
