I am a Software Research Scientist for rOpenSci, an orginisation dedicated to "Transforming science through open data and software," and for which I am helping to develop a new system for peer reviewing statistical software. I also develop R packages for accessing and analysing open spatial data, with a particular focus on urban planning and transport. I am a founding member of Active Transport Futures, and the lead developer of, a platform for open-source, open-access interactive visualisations of urban moveability.
