My interests include statistics, international relations and modern history. I am particularly interested in data analysis using R, interactive statistical graphics and post-WWII American history.

I study for pleasure as much as for professional advancement and am almost always studying part-time towards a qualification of some sort.

I like tinkering with my own software and web design projects when time permits. I go to the theatre fairly often, I like watching boxing and I try to at least go on a one-week hike once a year.
