I did my proposal yesterday and it went well ūüėÄ

I used beamer to prepare my slide deck and was very pleased with how easy it was to work with. R already has functionality to export tables to Latex format and they looked gorgeous in beamer.

I wanted to highlight certain parts of the results table and discuss the results as they relate to hypothesis. I achieved this through tikzmarkin and tikspicture. Below is an example and how it looks.
