Andrew B. Collier
I am a Physicist and a Data Scientist. I work on a diverse range of projects, mostly in R and Python, although I dabble in a range of other technologies. I enjoy public speaking and delivering training. I strive to make data and code more accessible, taking complex concepts and breaking them down into smaller, digestible units.
Trundler gathers price data from a range of online retailers using a sophisticated set of scrapers. These data are accessible via an API which has clients for both R and Python. The data from Trundler have been used for academic, commercial and regulatory applications.
