Dr Peter Prevos, Engineer and Social Scientist

I am a civil engineer and social scientist with a PhD in business. I manage the data science team at a regional water utility in Australia. My task is to create value by creating useful, sound and aesthetic data products.

On this blog, I share my experiments in the R language. Most posts are solutions to Project Euler problems. I also share miscellaneous debris with bits of code purely for fun. Lastly, I like to develop more R code for water utilities or hydroinformatics. My end-goal is to write a book about data science for water utilities using R.
