JavaScript / AI / Data Science / R



I lead the JavaScript team for Microsoft Cloud Advocates.

My background is in Data Science: I trained as a statistician at the University of Adelaide (Australia) and Lancaster University (UK), Since 2008, I've been writing regularly about R at the Revolutions blog, and I'm a founding member of the R Consortium board of directors.

In my personal time, I enjoy relaxing with my husband and our two Jack Russell terriers at home in the Napa Valley. I love movies and pinball, and playing Destiny and Rock Band on the Xbox.
