My name is Colin. I currently work as a Data Scientist at Facebook in Seattle, Washington. I work on the Community Integrity team, primarily on the problem of hate speech. I do a whole lot of my work with R, but I also like to use Python for some things. I do a little bit of teaching on the side. I’ll write about all kinds of different things here.
If you want to get in touch with me, you can email me at
colin dot r dot fraser at g mail dot com, tweet at me, or, I don’t know, it’s pretty easy to get in touch with people on the internet these days.
About this Website
This website was created with Blogdown, following the generously detailed instructions from the blogdown book. This allows me to write posts using Rmarkdown, which lets me put code right into posts that renders right in the posts.
library(ggplot2) library(magrittr) diamonds %>% ggplot(aes(y=price, x=carat, color=cut)) + geom_point(alpha=0.3) + theme_bw() + ggtitle('See? I made this plot just for the About page')
