Although I’ll likely be using it less for my day job, I’m a big fan of the R programming language and other open-source software, so I like to keep tabs on new packages and updates from the community. From 2015-2019 I helped out with the Ann Arbor’s R User Group as a co-organizer (usually as a workshop instructor, but occasionally giving talks). I’m also interested in open science and the reproducibility movement that’s being expressed in various forms across scientific communities.
