I am of Ngati Kahungunu, Rangitane and Ngati Pakeha descent.


Robert Gentleman and I were the originators of the R statistical software system. The system is now under the stewardship of the R Project and the R Foundation.

To find out more about R, I'd suggest going to one of the CRAN sites. Reading the R Newsletter is a good way to find out what's currently going on.


I continue to dabble in statistical computing research and exposition and also  in statistical graphics and visualisation (within R and more generally).
