R expert – ‘Rmd first’ driven – Serial cartographR

With a PhD thesis in marine ecology and experience in building data science tools for research, Sébastien now puts his scientific rigour at the service of our clients. With R of course!
Meticulous, rigorous and patient, his battles stand around readability, reproducibility and documentation of tools for everyone’s sake.
Indeed, his battle is to make writing maintainable code and documentation accessible to everyone and as painless as possible. His open-source packages, driven by the ‘Rmd first’ method, are developed in this aim.
Besides, this aspiration for precision is not incompatible with great creativity, especially when it comes to diverting statistical methods and other tools from their original uses to achieve his goals. His purpose is to expose the mechanisms that link the data together and to extract their very essence.
A big consumer of spatial data, he likes to draw maps (or waffles) with R.
