Jean-Paul Courneya Portrait

Please join UMB's Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) on Aug. 11 at noon in welcoming guest speaker Jean-Paul Courneya, MS, bioinformationist and data scientist, Health Sciences and Human Services Library, for the ICTR Enrichment Series Seminar topic, “Getting Connected to your Data — A Reproducible Workflow for Data Wrangling.”

Wrangling. Munging. Data Sanitation. These and other names describe an aspect of the data analysis lifecycle typically thought of as boring and unglamorous but which occupies the majority of time spent during a data analysis project. The time you spend in preparing your data for analysis, while crucial, cuts into the time available for using software to produce a visualization, calculate a statistic, or run a favorite machine learning algorithm.

The goal of this seminar is to provide a reproducible workflow for performing your own data wrangling. Courneya will suggest methods to help you: 1) get to know y​our data, 2) cultivate habits that will help you to spend less time on wrangling, and 3) optimally prepare your data for the output you're interested in producing.
