About Me

Agnese Vardanega

Agnese Vardanega I graduated in Sociology from the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, where I obtained a PhD in Methodology of Social and Political Sciences.

Currently, I am an associate professor at the University of Teramo, Faculty of Political Sciences, where I teach Sociology and Methodology of Social Research.

I am a member of the programme board for the PhD in Local Development and Social Policies (University of Teramo) and for the PhD in Applied Research in Social Science (University of Rome “La Sapienza”).

My fields of study are data analysis, web sociology, tourism and content analysis.

Since 2011, I’ve been running a wiki on the use of R in social research. Somewhat surprisingly, the wiki has several thousand hits per month. Sociospunti was online from 2009 to 2014, then I mainly dedicated myself to the wiki … and to my life.

In 2018, the book Ricerca Sociale con R  was released. The text is aimed mainly at students of social and political sciences.
