About

My name is Thomas Neitmann. I am a R enthusiast currently working for Swiss pharmaceutcial company Roche as a Statistical Programmer Analyst for late-phase clinical trials in oncology.

My R journey began in 2014 when a coworker told me to run an R script to “analyze some data”. Having never programmed before at that time I was overwhelmed. But I took on the challenge and soon realized the power and joy of programming.

Since then I learned a couple of other programming languages including MATLAB, Python and SAS. But my favorite is still by far R.

I enjoy sharing my knowledge and started doing so publicly on LinkedIn in late 2019. Since then I went from around 300 to +3000 followers. Many of those encouraged me to create a blog to have a central place for all my posts. So that’s what I did.

As the name suggests this blog focusses predominently on R. I will occasioanlly cover other, related topics such as git, though. I also enjoy data visualization a lot so you’ll likely find some posts on that, too.

If you have a specfic topic you would like me to write about please feel free to reach out. The best option to do so is via my LinkedIn. If you are not yet connected with me, make sure to send me a request with a short message. Otherwise, you might end up without a reply.
