Ramnath Vaidyanathan

VP of Product Research



My name is Ramnath and I work at DataCamp, where I drive data science and product analytics. I am deeply addicted to data science, the statistical programming language R, interactive visualizations, and javascript.

Prior to joining DataCamp, I worked at Alteryx as a data scientist , and as an assistant professor in the Desautels Faculty of Management. I spent a couple of years at McKinsey and Company as a business analyst, and have a PhD in Operations Management from the Wharton School. I ❤️ open-source and have developed several packages, including htmlwidgets, slidify, and rCharts. I am a frequent speaker at conferences and meetups.

I built this blog with blogdown, using a modified version of the amazing academic theme. All posts are released under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.
