Today I received an email saying my PhD has been awarded, and my thesis has been published. I am officially Dr Phil Jones!


Doncaster Festival of Research 2017 On Friday 20 October I was delighted to present a poster at the Doncaster Festival of Research 2017 Fringe Event in Denaby and Cadeby Miner’s Welfare in Denaby Main. With my poster I tried to summarise my doctoral research, which is challenging because it’s probably most relevant for a policy and practitioner audience. I hope it was useful for the people who came to talk to me about it.


I’ve patched rakeR on CRAN to v0.2.1 to fix a couple of problems in the examples and tests, which were using old labels and failing on some machines (thanks to Derek Atherton for the feedback). I’ve also updated the documentation website to use the new pkgdown template to be consistent with other R packages, most notably the tidyverse. And, that’s about it. If you’re using v0.2.0 and are happy there are no changes to the API to worry about.
