About me

I am studying multivariate data visulizations as PhD candidate at Monash University, Melbourne Austalia. I am the author of the R package {spinifex}, which facilitates ‘manual’ data visualization tours, ie. animations of linear projections orthogonally interpolating as the contribution of a single variable is controled. The package also consumes {tourr} tour paths extending the graphics they can be rendered with.

I am grateful to be studying with the NUMBATS and Immersive Analytics. My PhD reseach is in collaboration with Professor Dianne Cook and Professor Kim Marriott

I have been deepening my appreciation for coffee during my time in Austalia. I am dog person, and enjoy a wide varriety of Commedy and board games.
