Dmitry Shkolnik

Data Scientist at Destination Canada where I specialize in analysis and modelling to better understand the behaviour of international visitors to Canada. My work focuses on trying to identify new data sources that can be used to understand travellers and figuring out how to make the most of those new data sources. Sometimes I get to make pretty things too.

I’m the maintainer and coauthor of the cancensus R package that makes it much easier to do things with Canadian Census data.

I try to support open-source and open data where possible. I enjoy learning and using new tools whenever the opportunity presents itself, but I work primarily in R. In fact, this entire website was constructed in Rmarkdown using blogdown and Hugo.

If you wish to get in touch with me, please use any of links at the top of this page to find me on social media or just to email me directly.
