I’m a Data Insights Engineering Manager at Flatiron Health, where I help make real-world clinical data available for cancer research. My interests include statistics, data analysis, education, and programming in R.
I’m the co-author with Julia Silge of the tidytext package and the O’Reilly book Text Mining with R. I’m also the author of the broom and fuzzyjoin packages, and of the e-book Introduction to Empirical Bayes.
- Text Mining with R: A Tidy Approach: a guide to drawing insights from text using the tidytext package in R. Co-authored with Julia Silge, and published by O’Reilly in July 2017. Also available for free online.
- Introduction to Empirical Bayes: Examples from Baseball Statistics. An e-book demonstrating the statistical method of empirical Bayes, based on the example of estimating baseball batting averages.
- broom: Convert messy model outputs to a tidy format, for use with tools such as dplyr and tidyr.
- fuzzyjoin: Join tables based on inexact matching of columns
- tidytext: Analyze text using tidy packages such as dplyr, ggplot2, and tidyr
- stackr: R package for connecting to the Stack Exchange API
