Macarena Quiroga

Linguist/PhD student


I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I’ve studied psycholinguistics, cognitive psychology and education. Currently I research about language acquisition, specifically child vocabulary, with mixed methods, in Centro de Interdisciplinario de Investigaciones en Psicología Matemática y Experimental (CIIPME-CONICET). I’m interested in deepening my knowledge about R/RStudio, either for statistic analysis or for other usages, like presentations or web design. I’m a Certified Carpentries Trainer and Instructor. I’m part of the Organising Committee of LatinR: Latinoamerican Conference about R use in Research and Development and of RELIF: Red de Lingüistas en Formación.

In this blog I write about research and education, but mostly about my journey learning statistics and data science with R. My goal is to help others learn this great tool. If you are learning and interested in reading detailed articles about how to solve these kind of puzzles, this is your place. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have a specific question or if you would like me to write about a specific topic. If you like what I do, you can buy me a coffee from Argentina, or a kofi from other countries. Suscribe to my blog here so you don’t miss any updates.
