Please note: The content was bootstrapped with the Fall 2022 lectures and will be updated as move through the Spring 2024 term. We will be adding and updating lectures on a weekly basis. Keeping the previous lectures gives you a good idea of what will coming and gives you a roadmap of likely future content.


We have several key topics which form blocks of (generally) four lectures over a two week period. The links on the left lead to ‘per block’ pages with the actual lecture slides, videos, sometimes example data sets, and often supplementary (optional) reading.
