Research Software Developer
My background is in macroecology, in particular plankton ecology, although I’ve recently been working on birds traits. I enjoy extracting pattern from large ecological datasets, as well as the process of building statistical tools and software. My experiences, as well as those as a research QA auditor have led to a strong appreciation of the need to have good data management skills and an ability to produce well documented, reproducible workflows, software and reports. That’s why I try to incorporate open science principles in my work as much as possible. I’m excited by the opportunities afforded by open source technologies and keen to help others develop the necessary skills to become part of a more open, collaborative and reproducible science.
In JovaniLab I am working on phenotypic integration studying the network of bird traits’ evolutionary correlations.
