About Mara Averick

Mara (better known as @dataandme) is the RStudio tidyverse developer advocate. She got into R by way of a long-time obsession with the NBA and (fantasy) basketball. When not catering to the every whim of her dogs, she can be found: hunting down weird words; indulging her bibliomania; and/or quantifying, visualizing, and watching Archer.
