OSGeo Experience and Roles:
I am a spatial data scientist at Lancaster University, analysing patterns of disease. I use open source software such as QGIS, R, and Python and aspire to fully reproducible statistical analysis. I have contributed to several R packages for spatial data and statistics, and have mentored students on three Google Summer of Code projects.
I was on the FOSS4G 2013 Nottingham conference committee and the OSGeo UK 2016 conference committee and I would urge anyone to get involved in conference work!
