Our methods paper describing how to use our new R package
LoLinR to estimate monotonic biological rates using Local Linear Regression has just been accepted at the Journal of Experimental Biology! (see package and reproduce the paper here).

The second of the papers from my Ph.D. was recently accepted at The American Naturalist! Details to come.

My new(ish) lab mate Dr. Diego Barneche and I are developing an `R` package for estimating monotonic rates from biological data, and we are in desperate need of beta-testing! So… if you ever need to estimate a linear or monotonic rate from messy biological data, take a look at our GitHub page and download LoLinR
