Special Presentation: Miguel Fuentes' Research Software
Through his higher education programs, Miguel Fuentes has learned how different software can make research give him visually useful results, more in depth analysis and simply easier paths towards writing. Miguel is offering this introductory course to some (or all) the research tools he's encountered through the years: from software to find the literature he needs to write, software that make writing easier —as they break down the parts of an essay or a dissertation—, to software that help him catalog and analyze data in a systematized way. The presentation's goal will be three-fold: 1) skim through different software, 2) go more in depth on how to start using the software, and 3) dialogue with participants on how to use this software according to your needs.
The ability to use qualitative and quantitative methods landed Miguel the job he currently has at the Williams Research Institute, and using this software made it easier to develop advanced skills to do so. If you're entering the job market soon, these are tools that can definitely help make your case during the selection process! If you're an experienced researcher, these tools can make your writing and analysis easier, or can help your RAs manage your data more efficiently. In any case, software can be as useful as you want it to be.
