Wickham's work is focused on making data analysis easier for the community. He has been instrumental in changing the way we think about data analysis, and providing new tools for tidying, rearranging, summarising and plotting data. His R packages, tidyr, dplyr, ggplot2, ggvis, are open source and widely used.
