Hi guys! Welcome to my blog. I mainly write about data science and visualisations in climate science palaeobiology (hoping to expand soon). Enjoy!
I recently got myself a new laptop (HP Pavilion x360) to make it easier for myself to work from home during this pandemic. Since both my home and work desktop computers have Ubuntu 18.
The website is finally kinda live! I wonder how many hello-world posts I’ve written over the past 12 years (I do tend to fall in and out with blogging A LOT) but as of today, I’m saying goodbye to Wordpress and all its faff.
I am a paleobiologist (in training) interested in macroecological and macroevolutionary patterns generated through environmental processes across space and time. I mainly work with marine invertebrates using primarily the Paleobiology Database and Neptune Database. As part of my Master’s thesis, I’m currently working on investigating origination and range dynamics. In the future, I am also planning to include machine learning methods in my analyses, to carry out predictions on future dynamics of marine organisms using palaeontological data. I mainly use R in my analyses and am just starting out with Python.
Originally trained as a physical geographer, I also carry out research on modern climate and natural hazards, focusing on Turkey and Mauritius. In my free time, I also have a dabble with data visualisations.
