Miscellanea, poorly written code, and idle thoughts from a transfeminine lady-ish science person. That’s a real thing, right? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Danielle Navarro is a computational cognitive scientist at the University of New South Wales. Her research focuses on human concept learning, reasoning and decision making. She’s also interested in language and cultural evolution, cognitive development, and statistical methods in the behavioural sciences.
She leads the UNSW Computational Cognitive Science lab, a research group that uses a mix of experimental methods and computational modelling techniques to explore how the human mind works.
This site is her personal blog and website. Some of the posts are work related, others are just programming or thoughts about life in general.
My setup is a weird mix of things that only makes sense in context
After being inspired by recent conferences, I feel brave enough to face one of my deepest fears and learn how to write compiled C++ code for R using the Rcpp package. It isn’t as scary as I thought it would be
I seem to be the last person to the party on the skimr package. For folks like myself who have been living under a rock, it’s a tidyverse style package developed by some awesome rOpenSci people, intended to provide tools for summarising (or ‘skimming’) data sets in a quick and simple way. A lot of thought has gone into it - not only is it easy to use, it has very sensible default behaviour and is flexible and not difficulty to modify. It is fun!
The R-Ladies Sydney chapter is committed to improving the representation of minority genders in the R community

I maintain the website for UNSW women in psych, which we set up for International Women’s Day 2018.
