quantitative biological scientist

"I specialize in developing code to simulate from mechanistic and statistical models, as well as code to analyze data and models. I have developed a large part of the code for several (currently 8) peer-reviewed, scientific publications. In addition to continuing to write and provide computational support for individual publications, I have created and am maintaining an R package on CRAN that facilitates the simulation of the dynamics of infectious disease populations and the calculation of indicators of whether these populations are approaching a tipping point. Here are some examples of specific jobs you might hire me for: - Taking a mathematical or psuedocode description of a dynamical or statistical model and implementing a simulator - Developing a reproducible analysis of a data set - R package development - Developing a data dashboard - Developing a reproducible data-cleaning pipeline - Taking handwritten technical notes and typesetting them in LaTeX "
