Hello there πŸ‘‹ You are a bold one... for visiting my Github Profile! πŸ€–βš‘

Twitter Follow Linkedin: Ryo Nakagawara

My name is Ryo Nakagawara. Born in Japan, grew up in America & Israel, having also lived in Germany & the UK, I am currently residing in Tokyo, Japan. I'm quite proud to say that I am a citizen of the world!

Currently working for ACDI/VOCA, an international development NGO, as a Data Scientist. For the past 4 years I have been doing work as both a reporting analyst & a software developer in R & SQL. My main job has been improving ACDI/VOCA's data pipeline & create R packages, reproducible reports, dashboards, & Shiny apps to communicate how our projects worldwide are progressing. I also manage our entire R code base that includes various ETL scripts, R packages, & software applications for data collection/management.

I am also very involved in the R community (in Japan through Tokyo.R & internationally) through my volunteer work as an editor on the RWeekly newsletter (from April 2019). In 2020, I also did some work as a soccer analytics consultant for 11tegen11.
