Hi, I’m Nischal! I love using Python, R, and JavaScript to build fun and useful tools for data scientists. Currently, I’m a Data Science Educator at RStudio where I’m building autograding tools for Academy. I have worked on educational R packages like learnr or ggcheck for autograding, and Unravel for exploring and learning about code.

I did my PhD in Computer Science at North Carolina State University from 2016-2022. My dissertation explored Just-In-Time learning tools for data science programming with Chris Parnin in the alt-code lab. You can read my dissertation to learn more!

Outside of work, I enjoy running, powerlifting, watching/discussing tv shows/movies, listening to or making music, and coding for fun.
