My last role was as a Senior Data Engineer with Deck. Prior to Deck I worked with OurResearch as the product owner/developer on Unsub, a web application helping research librarians unsubscribe from paywalled journals. Before that, I was co-founder of rOpenSci, a non-profit creating open source tools in R. My first professional role was as postdoctoral scholar at Simon Fraser University in Canada.
Previously, I received my M.A. & Ph.D. at Rice University. There I studied a range of topics, including: ant-plant interactions, pollination, population and community ecology, species interaction networks, and evolutionary ecology.
