Tristan Raoult

Hey, I'm Tristan from France and I had to use R in order to adapt to a new research environment. You demystified R for me. Your choice to introduce tidy verse early took away much of the clunkyness of R. The format was fun and engaging, diving right in the subject without longish expositions. You obviously loved making those courses and it shows. It was worth every penny.

Federico Cussotto

My name is Federico and I'm a freshman resident in Public Health. I live and work in Turin, Italy. I'm very excited to be starting my residency, but I’m aware I have an important knowledge gap: the last time I studied Statistics was 8 years ago, and I didn't understand any of it. Thankfully, I've already known about Dr Martin for a while - his videos on Youtube being one factor in my carreer choice! - so I know where to turn for engaging educational content. Right now, I’m following An introduction to Statistics and finding it very useful: it tells me straight how and when to employ each statistical tool, without getting lost in math formulas or in the details of any specific software I may never use. I feel like I’m finally laying a solid foundation in Statistics, upon which I can ground a deeper understanding of the more advanced tools I encounter in my work. In other words, this course – and Greg’s teaching style in general – represents for me the optimal compromise between simplicity and complexity. I recommend this course to anyone wishing to gain a working understanding of Statistics without being a math wonk, especially – but not limited to – those involved in Public Health.
