William Chase

I’m a data analyst at the University of Pennsylvania where I specialize in data visualization. In my day job I use R every day to prepare figures for grant proposals and scientific papers. In my free time I do freelance data visualization, make generative art with R, and maintain and active blog (williamrchase.com). I also love to give presentations and teach R. I’ve given workshops and talks about R and data visualization at places like the PSU Anthropology department, PSU useR group, and Philly dataviz meetup.
