Dav Clark is a recent Ph.D. from the Psychology department, now working full time as data scientist at the UC Berkeley D-Lab, and as chief scientist at Oroeco. His primary responsibility is the development and support of software tools for collaborative and open science, though he spends a lot of time teaching newcomers Python and programming for the web. Especially in this latter case, he's found virtual environments to be invaluable. For his research, he applies behavior change thinking to the challenges of climate change and holistic wellness. He likes Python a lot, but did most of the statistics and graphs for his dissertation in R (leading ultimately to his engagement with RPy2 development).
