About Amalan Mahendran

I am a PhD student at the School of Mathematical Sciences, Queensland University of Technology working on “New methods of experimental design for subsampling under big data” and expecting to graduate in 2024.

I completed my Bachelor of Science (Statistics Special) on the subjects Statistics, Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka.

Conducting complex computations, writing reports and publishing them through R is my special skill over 7 years of experience. Yes, I am proficient in R related tools base, tidyverse, Rshiny, golem, bookdown, rmarkdown and quarto.

I have developed the below listed R packages and Shiny apps:

  1. SLPresElection: Presidential Election Data of “Sri Lanka” from 1982 to 2015.
