One sentence that perfectly describes me?
I am a crazy cat lady who also happens to like programming, statistics, data science, geocaching, reading and climbing.
The longer version …
Currently I am working as a data scientist after I finished my masters degree in bioinformatics in February 2016. At the moment my most used programming languages are C# and R. Since I think you can do really cool things with R although they are often not very intuitive, I am going to write some introductory posts about it.
In my free time I enjoy outdoor activities like walking with our dog, geocaching and climbing. Geocaching is the main reason why I started this blog, I was not very happy with the antipode calculators and coordinate tools that are available online, so I decided to implement them on my own. These will be coming soon (they are still not here yet, I know :()! From that point I decided that I should create a website/blog, because there might other tools be coming up that I miss and want to publish somewhere.
I also like to read, especially crime novels and thriller, play with my cats and sometimes cook or bake.
About our cats
As a crazy cat lady, I have to introduce my cats!
Minerva is our first cat and she is a very special cat. Besides loving to sit in the dish washer and drinking from the basin she prefers to be outside. She does not like to be petted very much and she absolutely hates cuddling.
Teddy came to us with three sisters because he is one of Maya’s babies (he still is a baby). He is the laziest cat I know so far, he literally can not walk for more than a couple of meters without falling down and asleep. Teddy (also called Teddl or Taddl) is probably also the cat with the greatest lack of intelligence. It takes about two minutes for him to forget that he had been fed.
He is not a cat, but not any less important 🙂 Hari is a dachshund, who came to us from a pet shelter. He loves to sleep, walk and join our geocaching tours.
