Summary

I have 5 years of experience using R mainly for biological purposes, but these skills can be transferred to other areas as well. I have worked with big data, different types of models and spatial data. I have a peer reviewed publication and another in review. Feel free to send me an email and we can discuss your needs or I can provide you with more information.
