`hello()`! I'm Barret Schloerke, PhD student at Purdue University advised by Dr. Ryan Hafen and Dr. William Cleveland. Our research group website is .org. I specialize in Large Data Visualization where I utilize the interactivity of a web browser, the fast iterations of the R programming language, and large data storage capacity of Hadoop. I was born and raised in "Cyclone Country" but I enjoy traveling all over the world.
