I am a Data Scientist & Professional Educator at RStudio. We develop free and open source tools to make it easier and more fun to do data science with the statistical programming language . We also create software to help teams who use R to share and publish their work.
I studied psychology and quantitative methods, receiving my Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University (2008). For eight years, I was a professor and scientist at Oregon Health & Science University, where my research was funded by the National Institutes of Health, the Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute, and Autism Speaks. I have written numerous scientific journal articles and book chapters on autism and neurodevelopmental disorders.
I have developed and delivered workshops, graduate-level courses, and curricula based on teaching R, the tidyverse, and literate programming. You can follow my current work for RStudio Education on GitHub .
