Born and bred in Muskoka, Ontario I am a consulting biologist and R programmer. I teach R, handle data management in R and develop R packages for a variety of disciplines in the Natural Sciences.
Beyond R, I’m a behavioural ecologist with an interest in how humans influence behaviour of animals and how citizen science projects can be used to do great science and engage the public.
Outside of research, I love travelling, be it camping locally or flying to visit exotic destinations. But I also enjoy stay-at-home activities such as reading, gardening and spinning wool into yarn.
I was honoured to receive the Society of Canadian Ornithologists/Société des ornithologistes du Canada’s inaugural Early Career Research Award for 2017
