I am an economist, self-taught programmer, BI lead, author, and R enthusiast. I enjoy programming, writing and teaching. Focus of my work is on making complex things more accessible.
My GitHub presence features the R packages I have developed over the last couple of years. They broadly fall into the following categories:
- Statistical methods and teaching (packages
- Data import and export (packages
- Working more efficiently with R (packages
- Enhancing the R language (packages
- Shiny (
- Converting XML data to R dataframes with xmlconvert
- Pointers/shortcuts in R with the 'pointr' package
- The 'xml2relational' package: Transforming NoSQL to relational data
- A switch-case construct for the R language
- Finding CRAN packages right from the R console
I try to keep away from social media (
Github != social_media) to protect my time and be more productive, but I do use Twitter. If you want to receive the latest updates on my packages and learn about interesting things I come across, click @jsugarelli to follow.

Generally, I like to try out new (or old?) things (ever written something in FORTH?)
