hi, i'm mark

I am a Research Software Scientist for rOpenSci, as part of which I develop open-source tools to automatically analyse and assess software. These include

  • pkgcheck to implement an array of checks on R packages.
  • pkgstats to extract code statistics from every R package ever.
  • autotest to automatically test R packages by mutating inputs.

Active Transport Futures

I am also a lead developer for Active Tranport Futures, an organisation dedicated to developing open-source software using open data to plan urban futures in which active transport plays an increasingly prominent role. See the pinned repositories below for some of that software.

What and how i code

Most of my code is bundled as R packages, with a lot of that written in C++ or C. I do everything in vim + tmux, via my dotfiles

Anything else?

I've got an intermittently updated blog, and make intermittent noises on twitter.
