This summer I was an intern at RStudio, where I worked with Jenny Bryan to develop a series of coding challenges to cultivate and reward the mastery of R and the tidyverse. I was previously a Data Science Fellow at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS), where I reviewed data submissions to a national repository for completion, clarity, and data management best practices. As a fellow, I also collaborated on a number of open science projects to improve access to Ecological Metadata Language (EML) and datasets in the DataONE network (see metajam, dataspice).
Before diving into data science, I worked on a number of conservation field projects in California, Nevada, and Florida. When I’m not programming in R, I enjoy reliving my field days by identifying local plants and wildlife. Most recently, I’ve been obsessed with tidepools and California wildflowers.
I’m looking for a full time position in R programming/data science (remote or Tel-Aviv based) to start fall/winter 2018-19. If you have any leads for me, or would simply like to chat, my line is open! Contact me through twitter or at irene[DOT]steves[AT]gmail[DOT]com.
