About

About me:

I currently work as a Data Analyst at University of California, San Francisco, and the San Francisco Veteran Affairs Medical Center. I did my undergrad/grad work in Exercise Physiology/Kinesiology at California State University, Chico with Professor Cindy Wolff & Tom Fahey. My grad work in Clinical Research at University of California, San Francisco was with Dr. Michael Kohn and Dr. Carmen Peralta.

I also teach strength and conditioning at Tactica Krav Maga Institute in Oakland with my better half, Alex. Contact her (aplowe7@gmail.com) for questions/comments on anything related to training.

My interests include (in no particular order): data visualization, data wrangling/munging/cleaning methods with R/Python (the uglier the data the better!), baseball, language and cognition, factors influencing exercise performance and fatigue, reproducible research, Bayesian vs. Frequentist inference and statistical methods, the Wu-Tang Clan, science communication, and Julia Child’s breakfast recipes.
