At the moment, this site is mainly intended as a medium to communicate with my students and share course material. Hopefully, it will grow into something larger quickly. The intention is to share my R-tutorials (on diagonal reference models, marginal effects, micro-macro models) here, to make my course Social Networks Analysis for social scientists available through this site, and to share my inner thoughts of life (e.g. on current affairs in academia) within the blog section. Ultimately of course, my aim is to save the world with this site. With that, thanks for reading and enjoy!
