Hi! I’m Hadley Wickham, Chief Scientist at RStudio, and an Adjunct Professor of Statistics at the University of Auckland, Stanford University, and Rice University. I build tools (computational and cognitive) that make data science easier, faster, and more fun. I’m from New Zealand but I currently live in Houston, TX with my husband and dogs.
If you’d like to learn more about what I do, and how to use R effectively, you might enjoy one of my books (which are all free to read on the web):
R for Data Science, with Garrett Grolemund, is the place to start if you want to learn how to do data science with R.
ggplot2: elegant graphics for data analysis shows you how to use ggplot2 to create graphics that help you understand your data.
Advanced R helps you master R as a programming language, teaching you what makes R tick.
R packages teaches good software engineering practices for R, using packages for bundling, documenting, and testing your code.
