  • Omni Analytics Group Shiny Laboratory (Development)

    As part of my work for Omni Analytics Group, I created a web portal with a suite of Shiny applications which were developed both by myself and my team. These applications prototype and highlight some of our capabilities as data scientists, and give a preview of how an analysis could look if deployed as a web application.

  • Past Consulting Work (Development)

    Here is a compilation of past consulting work that I have taken part in at Omni Analytics Group. These range from simple exploratory data analysis projects, to complex modeling and integration projects.

  • The intRo Statistical Software (Development)

    A Shiny-based web application to complement an introductory statistics class. This application implements common statistical routines in an easy-to-use web application so that students are happy with their first exposure to statistics. The application is deployed and available at

  • Algorithms for Matching Bullets (Development)

    My PhD research was on algorithms for bullet matching. This involved created an R package called bulletr which implements a set of statistical routines to automatically assess the probability that two bullets were fired from the same gun. We also deployed this as a web application, and our paper on this research was accepted by the Annals of Applied Statistics.
