Hello, my name is Cansu Kebabcı. I graduated from the master’s program in Statistics and Data Science at KU Leuven in 2022. I am thrilled to take the first step in my data scientist career within Statistics Globe, as I have been an enthusiast of tutoring in statistics and statistical programming since my bachelor’s years. I took teaching assistant roles at Sabanci University in fundamental concepts of statistics and applied statistics courses.

From my point of view, tutoring is a unique experience in which learning and teaching go hand in hand. To grow together in the knowledge of statistical methodology and programming, I will be sharing R, Python and statistical methodology tutorials on Statistics Globe.

Besides writing tutorials, I am also responsible for editing the tutorials written by our lovely team and responding to your questions and comments on the Statistics Globe’s webpage and YouTube channel.

It would be awesome if we could connect through the comments section below my and other team members’ tutorials. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions or leave suggestions for the upcoming tutorials.

Hi I have been following your youtube channel for R programming and they have helped me a lot. Is it possible that i can get your guidance for a project?

Sure, I can try to help. What kind of guidance do you need?

• Hi, I’ve been working on a portfolio recently. I have a question about choosing the optimal components for PCA. I have a total of 8 variables in my PCA and PC1 has a variance of 27.09%, PC2 22.17%, and PC3 12.43%. I’m hesitant on how to interpret this result and whether I should set an 80% threshold. If I do, I will be taking up to PC5 which is kind of weird. Based on a result like this, would it mean that PCA might not be a suitable method to apply to this dataset?
