My name is Ian Maddaus. I am a technical writer and a member of the Society for Technical Communication with an interest in R programming, data analysis, and GIS. I have a Master of Fine Arts in Science and Natural History Filmmaking from Montana State University, but since I graduated I’ve found that I like technical writing, GIS, and R more than filmmaking. Now I spend my time writing documents about complicated things.
I can provide a copy of a grant proposal on request.
This demonstrates what the Central Limit Theorem is, why it is significant, and what conclusions you can draw from sampled data.
My MFA thesis from Montana State University.
A guide to using the data table package in R.
I’m the Grants Committee Chair for the Orang Utan Republik Foundation. OURF supports conservation, outreach, and environmental education projects in North Sumatra, Indonesia to save wild Sumatran orangutans and their habitat. Orangutans are threatened by the expansion of palm oil plantations, logging, slash-and-burn agriculture, and the illegal pet trade; as a result orangutans are critically endangered.
OURF accepts donations here.
