I'm Petra, a psuedoanonymous (not really, I just don't like to post my last name everywhere) masters student at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, in Applied #Statistics.
I'm interested in R coding, biostats, and transgender healtcare and statistics. I've also been learning #Esperanto in my spare time.
I already have a mastodon account at @Petra@social.wxcafe.net but that's not really for serious stuff.
