Welcome to my personal homepage!
I am a Ph.D. student at Washington University focusing on biological anthropology. While my interests are broad, the majority of my projects concentrate on behavior and evolutionary genetics in primates.
"Recent advances in knowledge of a major papionin taxon: the Kinda baboon"As a participant in the symposium, I will be presenting or co-presenting the following posters:
Chiou, K.L. A pilot description and categorization of Kinda baboon vocalizations.
Weyher, A.H. and Chiou, K.L. Adult kinda baboon behavior - preliminary results from a two year study.

If you have half an hour to spare, here is a terrific talk by Bret Victor challenging the way scientists think about data visualization and presenting a vision for how best to move forward.

Desman: Pyrenean (Galemys pyrenaicus) and Russian (Desmana moschata) desmans are aquatic relatives of moles and bizarre, bizarre critters. Just look at them!

On her blog, Christina Bergey has previously alluded to our discussions about number generation. I am posting my solution here, not because it is the best solution, but because it shows how R code can be written into Unix scripts (see also this previous post).
Now suppose you want to utilize the above number generation script to rename image files. Your current directory contains exactly ten .jpg images:
You can rename the files (or rather generate the Unix code for renaming them) using the paste utility and some process substitution. Example below (assumes that num is the name of the Unix script):
Running these commands in Terminal (from the proper directory) will rename all ten images. Your directory listing is now this:
As a commenter pointed out in a previous post, R can run directly from Terminal. An R session, however, runs separately from other processes and the work performed in a session cannot be passed along to other programs without the intermediate step of writing files. Here, I show how R code can be written into Unix scripts without the need to start an R session.
