Who I Am and What I Do

Posted by Granville Matheson on Wednesday, August 1, 2018


My Present

My name is Granville Matheson, currently living and working in Stockholm, Sweden. My work is currently mostly focused on

  • Pharmacokinetic modelling
  • Statistical analysis
  • Reproducible workflows
  • Measurement error
  • Image analysis

The purpose of this blog is to have a place to put fun little data-science side projects, tutorials, or really whatever ends up feeling interesting enough that I want to put it out into the world. I’m a happy panda in R, and I love having an excuse to play with new packages, new visualisations, or exploring an interesting data set.

My History

I’m a Scottish South African in Sweden, i.e. born in South Africa to Scottish parents. I’m currently living with my wife and two daughters in Stockholm. I started by studying chemistry with psychology tacked on as an extra subject because it seemed fun. Psychology ended up being so interesting that I followed it and left chemistry behind. Through psychology, I found brains so interesting that I gradually shifted over to neuroscience. And learning coding while doing neuroscience, I’ve found data science so much fun that I’ve been gradually shifting in that direction, which finally feels like a place I’d like to call my academic home.
