What was my PhD about?

My PhD thesis, “Executing Goals and Intentions in Dynamic Multitasking Environments”, focuses on the effects of interruptions to deferred tasks in simulated air traffic control, and is currently under examination. These contributions to better understanding prospective memory awarded me an APA Early Career Research Award. My thesis was completed under supervision of Shayne Loft at the Human Factors and Applied Cognition Laboratory. I have a continued research interest in developing quantitative models of cognitive processes in workplace contexts.

I’m passionate about code.

Reproducible research, open-source/free software, and computational methods are central to my work. I spend a great deal of my time programming and twisting and wrangling data. I’m currently working with the easystats team, a young and ambitious project aiming to develop a usable and intuitive interface to R models. Open Source and Free software are a central part of my work and programming philosophy. I am a fan of excessive dotfiles and configurations. I actively promote computational literacy as an essential skill and actively help social scientists get started with programming.

What do I work with?

I tend to learn and use the tool required for the job; but I am most comfortable working with Python, Autohotkey, R (tidyverse/Stan/base), Go, Unix, and GNU Core/Utils. Those who work with me will know I have a strong passion for Debian, [Spac]Emacs, and Authotkey.
