Hi, I’m Evan. I’m a data scientist and software developer, a social researcher and a lapsed tree planter. I’m originally from Canada, spent six years in the UK and now call Berlin home. If you want to work on something together, do get in touch or check out my CV.
I create and maintain a dataset of speeches made in the UK House of Commons, which is more accurate in identifying speakers and is easier to use than both the official Hansard record and the mysociety ParlParse project. I have written a range of R packages to streamline scientific research.
I’m a big fan of making maps. I’ve built a map of where in London has the best value-for-money housing for access to public transport, and mapped out every golf course close to a train station in South-East England.
