About

See also Carson’s cv.

Carson enjoys developing software and creating products that make data analysis more accessible and interactive. For example, his contributions to plotly have made advanced interactive web graphics accessible to R users. Those contributions also earned him the 2017 John Chambers Statistical Software Award. Carson has over 5 years experience developing data science software, as well as formal training in traditional statistical methods – allowing him to attack challenging problems with domain expertise from many different areas. Whether it’s a novel visualization for better model interpretation (LDAvis), or a customized (shiny) web-application for exploring multiple datasets (e.g., zikar, pedestrians, eechidna, bcviz); Carson pushes the frontier of R and JavaScript to help (himself and others) derive insight from data in a reusable, portable, reproducible, and accessible way.
