I've been writing a blog for a few years now, but it started after I was already comfortably settled in a tenure track job. There have been some huge benefits of writing a scientific blog. It has certainly raised my visibility and given me opportunities to talk about issues that are a little outside of my usual research agenda. It has also inspired more than one research project that has ended up in a full blown peer-reviewed publication. I also frequently look to blogs/twitter accounts to see "what's happening" in the world of statistics/data science.

One thing that gets me incredibly fired up are student blogs. A few of my students have them and I read them whenever they post. But I have found it is hard to discover all of the blogs that might be written by students I'm not directly working with.

So this post is designed for two things:

(1) I'd really like it if you could please send me the links to twitter feeds/blogs/google+ pages etc. of students (undergrad, grad or postdoc) in statistics, computational biology, computational neuroscience, computational social science, etc. Anything that touches statistics and data is fair game.

(2) I plan to create a regularly-maintained page on the blog with links to student blogs with some kind of tagging system so other people can find all the cool stuff that students are thinking about/doing.

Please feel free to either post links in the comments, send them to us on twitter, or email them to me directly. I'll follow up in a couple of weeks once I have things organized.

Makes me happy when scientists self-organize.

http://politicalsciencereplication.wordpress.com/about/ A blog on data sharing and replication

Many straightforward tutorials on advanced graphical approaches in R: http://is-r.tumblr.com/

In regards to 2) - why not instead just create a blog aggregator? So people can just sign up for one feed and get updates for all of the students currently subscribed.

Feel free to add mine, http://andrewpwheeler.wordpress.com/ , computational social science seems a little grandiose a title though!

New postdoc blog, although it went dormant. Useful info on job market in quantitative social science: http://newpostdoc.blogspot.com/

I'm a Ph.D. student working on applications of machine learning to malware analysis. I keep a personal webpage and blog at charlesledoux.com

Do student articles count? I write about statistics occasionally (have another article idea in the works), but I don't have a formal blog:

http://www.refsmmat.com/articles/statistics.html

Also I'm a physics major. Shame on me.

I'm a computational neuroscience graduate student, though my blog (right) now tends to dwell more on decision-making and systems neuroscience than computation per se... your call: http://neuroecology.wordpress.com/

I write a blog on the general relationships between mathematics and programming, and quite a few of the posts involve machine learning. I'm a PhD student in complexity theory and learning theory (though most of my research has not yet ended up on my blog).

I'm in the middle of PhD program at Northwestern and post a little stats work on my blog, technobum, http://benjaminhaley.blogspot.com/ and my friend Dave is finishing his PhD at Stanford and posts more stats at http://www.stanford.edu/~paunesku/

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Statistics at UCLA.

I blog about machine learning, Hadoop, cloud computing, R and Python.

I write for the causality blog, on causal inferences in clinical epidemiology. http://www.focusgroupcausality.com @causalityblog

Hi! I Tweet about computational epidemiology @rumichunara

We have regular posts from PhD student epidemiologists on the Fuse blog (http://bit.ly/fuseblog). This is a good example, but there are others: http://fuseopenscienceblog.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/perineal-what.html Epidemiological doctoral student tweeters in Fuse include: @lsmeatonforrest @peter-tennant

I'm a PhD student. I write about statistics in ecology, and some other ML stuff. http://bayesianbiologist.com/ enjoy!

Here's my blog, Jeff http://peterhickey.me/blog/. I've got the vague title of Stats and Genomes.

And I'm on twitter as @PeteHaitch

I'm an associate editor on the official blog of the ISI journal Stat: http://Statblog.net, which is just starting up.

You have my twitter (@sherrirose) even though @leekgroup does not follow it! 😉

Jeff barely follows anyone 😛 Though with his 29 "following" he beats Rafa's 15.

http://statisticalrecipes.blogspot.com/ blog which discusses topics in statistics, bioinformatics, and a personal hobby cooking

Your recipe posts have GREAT pictures! I also liked your teaching stats posts with R code. +1

I write about solving random problems using statistics and data at http://devnambi.com/ . Two examples are using data to buy a car, http://devnambi.com/analysis-resources/car-buying/ , and to find good schools, http://devnambi.com/archive/2013/02/school-analysis-part-three/

Hey guys,

I'm trying to start blogging more this year (CS/Maths major - trying stats)

While doing research for the Samsung data project, I came across this blog by Gerard JP Westen, a post-doc in France. One comment by this blogger: Hope this helps anyone when stuck (and that this page is indexed by Google, well probably isn't the case) http://blog.gjpvanwesten.nl/ Maybe he'll get indexed now!

I don't always blog, but when I do, it's at: http://hopstat.wordpress.com/ and @strictlyStat

I like your new Shiny-related posts ^^

This is a great idea! I am glad to know about these blogs.

Here is my all new and shiny blog (mainly about Bayesian models). http://snippyhollow.github.com/

I'm an undergrad student in statistics, with aspirations for graduate studies in either statistics or biostatistics! I'm also currently enrolled in the Data Analysis class on Coursera, and am really enjoying it

My blog is almost completely about my life, and not so much about stats, but perhaps someone will find it interesting: http://acciopensieve.blogspot.ca/

Computational Neuroscience blog

I blog about my hobby: DIY bioinformatics and metagenomics. http://bioinformatics-man.blogspot.be/

I'm a PhD student at The University of Bucharest. I blog about web mining and machine learning at http://webmining.olariu.org

A blog about randomness, as it occurs in my life, the social and biological sciences, and elsewhere:

http://thirdorderscientist.org/homoclinic-orbit

by a PhD student working on the use and development of (principled!) statistical inference methods for complex systems.

I am blogging on some of my work for my project in bioinformatics/genomics data analysis. I try to make code and data available when possible too. Also, I took the Coursera "Data analysis" class and i can't tell you how much it helped!! Thanks:) http://searchvoidstar.tumblr.com/

I dont blog but came to know about good site http://www.novelanswer.com/ major in Statistics assignment and problem solving.
