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.

I enjoy teaching and outreach and try to spread the love of R and make science more accessible.

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
