About Jesse

I am a PhD candidate in Management at the University of Kentucky and a member of the LINKS Center for Social Network Analysis. I research social networks and organizations. The title of the blog is a play on the Calvin and Hobbes book Scientific Progress Goes Boink! and an important social network structure - the triad.

I love writing code. The world is digital, so I try to speak its language. This is a public notebook where I record and share my trials with coding. I do most of my analysis work in R, but I have a major project that I’m writing with JavaScript and NodeJS. I also dabble in some other languages like Julia, C++, and Python.
