Hi there, I'm Amit 👋

I'm a bicultural environmental engineer turned data director and data science educator and speaker. I use R for most things, sometimes even correctly! I believe in diversity and have spent my entire 20+ year career working to improve this world or the lives of the people that live in it.

  • 🔭 I’m currently working on finishing my infinite list of unfinished packages!
  • 🌱 I’m currently learning Baysian inference
  • 👯 I’m looking to collaborate on COVID-19 or #BlackLivesMatter initiatives. Contact me, I'm willing to volunteer!
  • 💬 Ask me about United Nations, International Development, NGOs, charities, teaching and anything R!
  • 📫 How to reach me:
  • 😄 Pronouns: He
  • Fun fact: I live in a small flat with a balcony, but I'm still composting my food waste and growing ~70 tomatos, 6 types of chilli and a bunch of other stuff!
