# Speaker details
Elaine Miles is a data scientist based in Auckland. She works at Aeroqual LTD where she uses machine learning methods to analyse and improve the operation of air quality sensors and networks. She previously worked at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology on large seasonal models to predict extreme sea levels, and to test the impact of observation networks to weather prediction models. Her PhD focused on adapting laser-based methods to monitor artwork (which included watching paint dry).
Elaine has recently learnt how to program in R and is going to share some of her insights on working with multiple processors in order to crunch large datasets and execute repetitive tasks in parallel.
