Where did you first hear about SURF ?

At inception. I co-founded this group.

How long have you been using R for? Or are you a beginner?

I first used the related S language in 2000 for all data management, analysis and graphics of my Masters project. I started using R itself in 2010 (occasionally) and now find myself favouring it over other statistical software options. I am proficient in several statistical software including SAS, SPSS, Statistica, Minitab. I also program in SQL language (variety of environments).

Do you use R in your work?

Yes - R has come of age.

What R packages do you use ?

Mainly base,ggplot,rattle. I investigate others on an as needs basis. There are so many!

What would you like to learn more about ?

How others are using this package. I most enjoy talks that demonstrate how others use R to solve specific business analytics problems.


I'm a statistician with 15+ years work experience across a variety of industries, including health, marketing and telecommunications.
