I finished the QERM program in June, 2008 and am now employed by National Marine Fisheries Service. I work at the NMFS Northwest Fisheries Science Center doing stock assessments for groundfish and working on related research projects.
Here are some links:
- my dissertation.
- a collaborative effort to develop R code for reading and plotting results of the Stock Synthesis model (which is written in AD_Model_Builder), at this site I set up in October 2008: http://code.google.com/p/r4ss/
June 5, 2009 Quantitative Seminar
Here is the Powerpoint file from my June 5, 2009 Quantitative Seminar.
Someone asked about the shading in some of the plots of depletion and spawning biomass timeseries. This was done using the relatively simple probshade function I wrote, which is available in Probshade.R. There is also a grey only version in that file that doesn't depend on alpha transparency (see R/Colors for more info on transparency).
Example use might be
ymat = matrix(rnorm(50000),50,1000)-1:50/30 probshade(mat=ymat,vec=1:50,col='red',xaxs='i',ylab='y-value')
which produced the plot at right.
LaTeX from 2008 defense
Here is the LaTeX for my dissertation defense talk IanTaylorDefenseTalk cleanedup.tex
I couldn't upload the PDF of the talk to this wiki (presumably because it's too big), so I posted it here: http://staff.washington.edu/itaylor/IanTaylorDefenseTalk.pdf
