👋 Hey there!

I’m Garrick Aden-Buie. I’m a Software Engineer for Shiny at Posit (the company formerly known as RStudio). I build tools in R, R Markdown, Shiny to help you do data science with R.

Before Shiny, I helped build Posit Academy, an online, immersive, data science apprenticeship for professional teams.

About Me

Prior to working at RStudio, I was a data scientist at the Moffitt Cancer Center where I work in the Collaborative Data Services Core. Previously, I was a Ph.D. candidate at the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL in the Department of Industrial and Management Sciences Engineering where I helped develop a smart home sensor technology system to enable healthy aging in-place.

I’m a passionate R user and educator. I build web apps using Shiny, tools and packages for R, and dynamic, interactive, reproducible reports using R Markdown. Browse my list of projects for examples of my work, a selection of educational presentations, or review my full curriculum vitae (resume).

Let’s do something awesome together!

If you’re interested in working with me, please drop me a line at garrick@adenbuie.com!

A little bit more about me…

As an undergrad, I studied at Lehigh University, in Bethlehem, PA, only twenty minutes from where I grew up. There, I received a B.S in Applied Mathematics. I also spent a year living and studying in Madrid, Spain, which helped me earn a B.A. in Spanish at Lehigh.

I am a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer. I lived in small town outside of Cuenca, Ecuador where I taught Math, English and life and parenting skills.

I also write songs and play acoustic guitar, sometimes in public (though not as much as I would like to).
