R Maintainers

Our maintainers are the lynchpins of the language tracks and exercises on Exercism. This group of wonderful people maintain the R Track, creating and updating the exercises and tooling for R.

I was introduced to R during my statistics undergrad in 2006 and have been trying to learn to use it properly ever since! I love the power, flexibility and expressiveness of the language, and hope I can help others to appreciate it too.

I struggled to apply R to my own PhD research data in 2013. A Science Craft grad school course finally got me started when I decided to use another, well-formated data set. Since then, I have found R to be a lifeline for data analysis and teaching myself and others one or the other programming skill :-) R may not be pretty, but it gets the job done.
