Replying to Cath Brislane

This is great Shehnaz! I was in a similar position last year. After having my original research compromised due to the pandemic, I had to learn R from scratch and it was tough at first, but you definitely learn a lot after coming out of the other side. 

Best of luck with your research- you've got this!

Thank you so much,Cath. I am happy you came through it strong :)

Really encouraging piece,Cath.
