Rapid City, SD
I'm a licensed civil engineer specializing in instrumentation and control, Campbell Scientific systems, geotechnical disaster monitoring, early warning systems, and large-scale irrigation automation (canals, not sprinklers). Certified SPRAT level I, 40-hr MSHA, and 40-hr HAZWOPER. I practice and teach yoga, and often wonder "why am I up here?" while climbing granite in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
I've been dabbling with R for a couple years now. Stack Overflow has helped, but often it seems that the answers are written for people who hold PhDs in computer engineering by people who hold dual PhDs in computer science and statistics. That is frustrating.
