Hi! I’m Meghan.
I am a data manager in higher ed. I contribute to the public sports analytics community by helping beginners learn R as well as by writing and presenting on various aspects of hockey analysis as a member of Hockey-Graphs. I was previously a data scientist at Zelus Analytics.
I frequently deliver talks and workshops on R—for useR groups, R-Ladies groups, and conferences such as the Carnegie Mellon Sports Analytics Conference and Hockey (Analytics) Night in Canada. In the summer of 2021, I taught an undergrad course on data visualization at Carnegie Mellon University.
