Dr Peter Prevos, Civil 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 in three areas:
- R code for water utilities or hydroinformatics.
- Solutions to Project Euler problems.
- Miscellaneous debris with bits of code purely for fun.
