Maintainers are a key part of The Carpentries community, acting as the backbone that supports our open-source curriculum and keeps our many lessons healthy.

Message from Angela Li

Hi folks! Glad to be joining The Carpentries team. I am a research staff member at the Center for Spatial Data Science at the University of Chicago. I have a background in spatial econometrics, but my day-to-day work consists of developing open source spatial analysis resources and teaching social science researchers how to use geospatial data and spatial analysis in their work. I am a certified Carpentries Instructor and am heavily involved in building The Carpentries community at my institution. I have also played a large role in the R-Ladies Chicago community and a number of open-source R and spatial initiatives, so I am excited to bring my community building experience to The Carpentries Maintainer community. I’m looking forward to engaging with the Maintainer community and providing ongoing support for this crucial piece of The Carpentries mission. Find me at @CivicAngela on Twitter!
